When good is not enough!
So, here is my thought on this:
1. The world is a cruel place. Today's hero is quickly forgotten and replaced with someone else. Thankfully God doesn't treat us like this. With billions of people on the planet it would be easy for Jesus to 'fire us' for someone more holy!
2. Although Van Gaal was good as a manager, being 'good' wasn't enough for the board. They want something more. This reminds me of the Old Testament LAW in some ways. We can try and be GOOD as much as we like, but being GOOD is not going to save us. We all fall short of the glory of God and so we need God's grace to make us righteous.
Ephesians 2:8 - "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith—and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God..."
Living in Grace
