Law Breaker

Okay, my forgetfulness has gone too far. It has made me a lawbreaker!

A couple nights ago, we had trouble with our TV so I called a technician to fix it. After they completed their work, I wrote the check, put my driver's license number on it along with the date my license expired. It expired last month! I have been driving around with an expired license for over a month!

Of course, my imagination went wild. What if I had been in an accident? What if I had been not come to a complete stop at the stop sign and a policeman pulled me over? They may have thrown me in jail! In my mind, I saw the front page of our newspaper, Local Pastor's Wife Jailed for Expired Driver's License.

I have an appointment in a week. Until then, I will drive very carefully and pray everyone else does.

All of us are lawbreakers. We have broken God's laws because we couldn't possibly keep them. That's why he had to send his Son, Jesus, to die for our law breaking. Now we have the opportunity to let what he did take care of our lawlessness. Awesome!

Hoping they are as gracious at the DMV, Gloria
