Day 9 of our 21 Days of Gratitude has our attention on 2nd Chances. Getting dressed and hurrying to grab something to eat, had me tripping over my own 2 feet…..2nd Chance. All the skills, educational degrees, talents, strength all seem to bow when 2nd Chance enters the scene. A teacher allowing a student to take another exam, when they clearly did not pass…..2nd Chance. When a car is swerving into another lane and an accident is avoided …..2nd Chance. When you catch yourself while standing on an escalator and it suddenly stops ….2nd Chance. We’ve all experienced it, benefited from it, witnessed it in some form or another. Today we are thankful for those 2nd chances that we take for granted.
Think of 3 situations where you experienced a 2nd Chance. How did that make you feel while you were in the situation?
Think of ONE situation, where you can grant someone a 2nd Chance. If you struggle with this, just go back to the list of 3 scenarios because something will come to mind! 🙂
Demonstrate and create opportunities of 2nd chances. Why? Because you’ve been a willing participant and recipient of this gracious encounter. 2nd Chances are best received when the participant does not deserve it.
