I reached for a can of green beans in the pantry recently to heat up for supper. I was glad I flipped the can over to look at the “Best if used by” date. We should have eaten those beans I grabbed two years ago.
I have to admit sometimes the “Best if used by” date slips past our scrutiny. Weeks, months, even a few years for that can of beans, past the “Best by” date render the food useless, maybe even harmful if we consume it. We need to be vigilant and continually check the “Best If Used By” on all the food we fix.
Aren’t you glad God’s grace and mercy don’t have a “Best if used by” date? We will never hear Him say, “I’m all out.” His supply of both never stops. No matter what we do, who we are, or where we go.
Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They arenew every morning; great is your faithfulness. Lamentations 3:22-23
God’s grace is inexhaustible. It is always available and always flows freely from God’s eternal fountain of grace.
