Napoleon Bonaparte, the great French leader during the wars between Britain and France once said, “trivial things often decide the outcome of a battle.” And trivial things can determine how we live our lives. Unforgiveness often results in bitterness. Searching for pleasure and satisfaction in this present world will, in the end leave only emptiness. And procrastination in making life’s greatest decision, the acceptance of Jesus’ offer of forgiveness and everlasting life, will result in an eternity of regret. Isaiah warned, “seek the Lord while He may be found, call upon Him while He is near… and He will abundantly pardon.” But God does not force His grace upon anyone, we must ask for it. We can do that by praying a simple prayer, “God be merciful to me, a sinner, and save me for Jesus’ sake.” When prayed sincerely, that request has never been turned down.
