Extra grace required. I have been thinking a lot about grace, that unmerited favor that God gives to us.
I am thankful for God’s grace in my life. I know there are many times when I don’t deserve that grace, but he gives it anyway. Can I do anything less?
There are people in my life who need grace extended to them. I need to be that person who gives them grace, unmerited favor. I can never give them what God gives, but I can give them grace in our relationships and interactions and this is my heart’s desire.
Everyone needs grace. We need God’s grace and we need grace from others. I am sure that we all need extra grace from time to time, but there are people in our lives for whom extra grace is truly required.
I realize that I tend to be critical of those persons and that’s when I know I need to stop and give them more grace. Truly extra grace is required.
I have been reading about grace in the Bible and I know that God gave extra grace to many different people. How can I do anything less?
Father, thank you for the grace that fills my life. Help me to be a person who gives grace to others freely and without complaint. Amen.
