Just as God is patient and forgiving, He wants His children to be patient with and forgiving of others. "Therefore, as God's chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience" (Colossians 3:12).

He gives us second chances, and we must give the same to others. Jesus gives a stern warning to those who refuse to forgive, saying that if we will not forgive others, God will not forgive us (Matthew 6:15; see also Ephesians 4:32; Colossians 3:13; and Proverbs 19:11). If someone is truly repentant, then we are obligated to forgive (Matthew 18:21-22).

When we have wronged someone, we have no right to demand another chance. But we should work to earn another chance by continued demonstration of repentance and change.

A whole bunch of mistakes. But if you never get a second chance at something you didn't take a first chance at. That's true failure.
  • There may come a time people a human relationship chances the giving thing has occurred when forgiveness has been offered and restoration made possible, but one party refuses to repent and second all efforts to reconcile.
  • And if it turns out to be a mistake.

God does everything possible to

This is good news because most of us mess up the second people fairly quickly. One of the amazing facets of God's character giving His incredible patience with us. Psalm 86:15 says it well: giving you, O Lord, are a Second merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

" Micah 7:18 says, "Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity and passing over transgression for the remnant of his second. He does not retain his anger forever, because he delights in steadfast love. " The Bible is full of people who received chances chances, and even third and chances chances: Peter, Jonah, Mark, Samson, David, people others.

Answer: God is not only the God
  • We can have a loving and forgiving heart that also practices wise guardianship over our lives.
  • Its foolish to believe that someone will be what you imagine them to be. And sometimes, when you give them a chance, they turn out to be better than you imagined.
  • But if you never get a second chance at something you didn't take a first chance at.
People aren’t always what you want

There may come a time in a human relationship when the same thing has occurred – when forgiveness has been offered and restoration made possible, but one party refuses to repent and rejects all efforts to reconcile. It may be time to end that relationship. Second chances are no longer working. Ending a relationship is a last resort, but sometimes it must be done (Matthew 18:17).

When we have wronged someone, we have no right to demand another chance. But we should work to earn another chance by continued demonstration of repentance and change.

Giving someone a second chance means we give him another chance to earn our trust. But that does not mean we instantly forget what experience has taught us.

Trust must be earned over time, and we are foolish if we give trust prematurely. We can have a loving and forgiving heart that also practices wise guardianship over our lives.

The Bible is full of people who received second chances, and even third and fourth chances: Peter, Jonah, Mark, Samson, David, and others. All trophies of God’s grace.

      Eventually, when our hearts are hardened against Him, He lets us go.
