One Scarred Hand

There’s an Andy Griffith episode where Andy is trying to get out of marrying a backwoods country girl. Her family is very superstitious, so Andy and Barney devise a plan to act as if Andy is cursed. Barney has to dress in black and ride a white horse going east to west. It, of course, all works out in the end.

Psalm 103:12 says, He has removed our sins as far from us as the east is from the west.

A long time ago people believed the earth was flat. Surprisingly, some people still believe it today. If the earth were flat, then measurement from east to west would be simple. But it isn’t flat. So…

Just how far is the east from the west?

On a somewhat round planet, it is never-ending.

God’s forgiveness for us is never-ending. It’s as far as the east is from the west.

It is one scarred hand to the other!
