Jeremiah 3:1

"They say, If a man put away his wife, and she go from him, and become another man’s, shall he return unto her again? shall not that land be greatly polluted? but thou hast played the harlot with many lovers; yet return again to me, saith the Lord."
Jeremiah 3:1

I think this verse helps us get a sense of how abhorrent to God it is when we sin. The kind of behavior described in this verse would permanently end almost all relationships... but God is saying, even though we've done things that no one would forgive, he is still willing to take us back, and we can still be loved and cherished.
We all sin. Sometimes in big ways and sometimes in little ways, but all of those add up to a pretty big betrayal of God and our relationship with him. Today, let's work on that relationship, and help it work its way back to primacy in our lives. Let's remove whatever impediments are keeping us from him, and accept God's invitation to return.
