Too Few Sparrows

THURSDAY, APRIL 14 | MAUNDY THURSDAY

Good Enough, 215-219       Matthew 26:17-29
“Blessed are we, the newly wrong, chuckling over how much it hurts to be chastened a little”

(Good Enough, 218). What ‘newly wrong’ experiences have you had lately?

In Matthew 26:17-29, just before betraying Jesus, Judas asks, “Surely, you don’t mean me, Lord?” Have you faced any grave situations where you were in the wrong?

At the last supper with his friends, Jesus is showing them how love can reach even those seemingly unforgivable places. Where might you need to give or receive forgiveness, but feel like it’s too late or too much to ask?

PRAY:

Just as I am, without one plea,
But that Thy blood was shed for me, And that Thou bid’st me come to Thee, O Lamb of God, I come,
I come

From Just as I am,Without One Plea, a hymn by Charlotte Elliott (1789-1871)
