Good Morning August 11

Recycling is big today. Everyone recognizes that we make too much trash and need to reuse a lot of our throwaway material. I put my big blue container out by the street with it’s two weeks worth of newspapers, plastic containers, glass jars, and cans. Then tomorrow when I go to Staples to buy a case of copy paper it will have been made from some of those same recycled materials. Obviously, recycling is a good idea. If you think about it, God is first one who declared recycling a good idea. In His grace He has been recycling people since the Fall. Man’s nature is self-willed and opposed to God. Over the years of life we make wrong decisions separating ourselves from our Lord. But God is not willing to throw us away. His forgiving grace continually reaches out, seeking to get us to turn in faith to Him again. He extends His sure promise, “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness.”(I John 1:9) There is no better recycling than this. In Christ “the old things passed away; behold, new things have come.”( II Corinthians 5:17)
