It was “raining money recently in Sackville NS. Motorists there stopped to retrieve cash, cheques and the wallet from which they had come. A New Brunswick man had left his wallet on top of his car, and driven off, scattering over twenty-five hundred dollars. Fortunately, the motorists behind him turned the money over to the RCMP. In this case, right prevailed. But we all know that within us, there is the inclination to do wrong, to deceive, lie, cheat, gossip and worse. Although we all stand as sinners before a Holy God, there is good news for those who invite Christ into their lives. David the Psalmist reminds us that God “has not dealt with us according to our sins…for as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is His mercy toward those who fear Him; as far as the east is from the west, so far has He removed our transgressions from us.” That’s God’s answer to our depravity.
