The New and Novel

Some things are enjoyable because they are new. We can enjoy laughing in the rain after a long dry spell, the cool breeze on a summer evening, or an exotic food on a foreign trip.


But those things can get old. Snow is a novelty, until you have 6 months of it. At that point you never want to see it again!

But some things never get old. Some things only get better the longer you go.
“The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” (Lamentations 3:22-23)

God’s grace and gracious actions are new each day. His gifts of mercy, forgiveness, peace, and joy do not grow old because they are ever new.
