What if God had the same attitude at the beginning of creation week that we do at the start of our work week?

"God gives us more and more grace and peace as [we] grow
in [our] knowledge of God and Jesus our Lord" (2 Peter 1:2).
Over the years, our relationship with Jesus changes. At first, it's intense; everything is new. (Even old Bible stories take on new meaning!) But as time goes on, we become more comfortable with Him. Our passion doesn't lessen, and we learn new things, but there is a resting and familiar understanding.

"Today I am giving you the choice between a blessing and a curse" (Deuteronomy 11:26).
Today. Just today. Morning hours... afternoon hours... evening hours...
I am giving you the choice. It's up to you.
Between. One or the other. Not both.
A blessing. Good things that sustain your life and give you strength to handle the hard things.
Or a curse. Sad, unnecessary consequences.

A great thing about Jesus is that He's a faithful friend. He doesn't leave the table when we mess up (or when someone messes us up). He sits with us and pours true love into our cup. And He keeps pouring... until we drink our fill of what is good. And when we are satisfied, we turn and offer a cup to the person sitting at the next table.
