Some people are remembered more for one glaring mistake than they are for all the rest of the things they did in life.

That was true for a man named Douglas Corrigan.

In 1938, he set off from New York in a single engine plane, presumably headed for the West Coast. 28 hours later he landed in Dublin, Ireland!

He claimed it was just a mistake, but for the rest of his life he was known as “Wrong Way Corrigan.”

God doesn’t want our mistakes, or our doubts, to define us.

He is a God of second chances.

Just ask David. Or Peter. Or Thomas. Or anyone who has experienced the forgiveness of God, the grace of God and the love of God.
