I attended a high school fundraiser this past weekend. It was a fun evening of drinks, barbecue, a silent auction, an auction for the evening’s desserts of cakes, cookies, and pies, an ongoing game of heads or tails with Mardi Gras beads in the high school colors, and three rounds of trivia. Each table competing against each other. And mulligans could be purchased for the trivia games. A mulligan got your team a correct answer if you were not in the know of a certain question.
A mulligan is a second chance to perform an action, usually after the first chance is not up to par. It’s best known in golf, where a player is informally allowed to replay a stroke, even though it’s against the formal rules of the game.
Is there something in your life you’d like to take a mulligan for? A do-over?
I’m sure each of us at some time or another have wished for a mulligan. Guess what?! That’s what Jesus’ death on the cross did for us! It offered each of us a mulligan! A lifetime supply! Forgiveness for our sins. A second chance. A do-over.
Let’s all be thankful for Christ’s gift of forgiveness. He not only forgives, He forgets. Therefore there’s no need for regrets. Let’s all give our very best at whatever we do. And when we don’t perform up to par, then let’s step back and ask Christ for a mulligan, forgiveness for our sins, a do-over. God’s grace.
Second chances. We all deserve them. Let Christ become your mulligan. He’s all the extra help you’ll ever need.♡
God, my God, I yelled for help and you put me together. God, you pulled me out of the grave, gave me another chance at life when I was down-and-out. Psalm 30:2
Love and laughter,
