WAKE UP TO THE GIFT OF 24 HOURS by Max Lucado


The following are notes I took from the book by Max Lucado


Give Every Day a Chance

Need Spice in your Day?
Remember to thank God for every problem.

Remember if you don’t like where you are sitting,
there are about 1000 handicapped that would gladly trade places with you.


Proverbs 4:23
Be careful what you think about because your thoughts run your life.

If we worry we fall short on love.
How could we pay God for all the times we come up short?
God forgives with His gift of Jesus Christ.
We do the unthinkable – the forgiven refuse to forgive

Who wants to live in a house filled with rubble.
We hoard trash of the past , not in our house but
In our hearts.

Do you pack rat pain, rejections, anger and hurt?
Look at Matthew 18:21-22
Lord how often should I forgive someones sins against me?
Seven times, no, not seven times Jesus replied
But seventy times seven
.

That equals 490 times
God forgives the unforgivable

So my heavenly Father also will do to you if each of you from his heart does not forgive his brother his trespass.

Matthew 18:35

God is kind to you so you will change your hearts and lives

Romans 2:4

If you have hurts in your heart you can expect the joy level of a Siberian death camp

Forgiveness does not mean approval you are are not endorsing misbehavior, you are trusting your offender to He who judges rightly. 1Peter 2:3

May we choose forgiveness


'On Ya' - ma
