eSeed: Great Men Make Mistakes

Read 1 John 1:1-9

On his last visit to Philadelphia, President John F. Kennedy gave a man his pencil. On one end was an eraser that showed signs of much use. A friend asked him, “What do you cherish most about that pencil?”

“The eraser,” he answered. “When I look at it I’m reminded that great men also make mistakes.”

“Yes,” says the Living Bible, “all have sinned. No one anywhere has kept on doing what is right, not one.”

Where’s the Divine eraser that can remove our sins? The Bible answers, “The blood of Jesus cleanses us from every sin.”

Made mistakes? Want them erased? Go to the Lord. He’ll cleanse you.

Prayer: Keep us, Father, from committing the same sins over again. Inspire us to willingly and whole heartedly obey Thee. Grant that we may only do Thy will and always delight in Thy word, pleasing Thee in everything: in Christ. Amen.
