I saw this tattoo a while back. It should have said: “It’s my life” -Jon Bon Jovi


Apparently, the person getting this tattoo was a big fan of the rocker. The tattoo artist, on the other hand, wasn’t a fan, maybe not much of an english major… and not much of an “artist” either.

So now, I need to say MOST mistakes aren’t permanent. We all make them, but with God’s grace and help, we are NOT our past.

We may still wear or experience the scars of our consequences, but forgiveness from God is the real deal!

Receiving God’s forgiveness is absolutely amazing…and so is passing it on. Here’s a great picture (not a tattoo) of why this is all so critical. Take a minute and read this story from Jesus.

Matthew 18:21-35
