Needing some grace
Grace shines. Grace is glorious.
If we think of people who’ve made a positive impact in our lives, I wonder how much is because they exhibited grace, had grace to give?
A teacher who wanted to know why you were ornery or sad and not just punish you and put you out.
The coach who gave you another chance even after you had failed.
Parents who love you and look forward to your visit despite how mean you had been when you were younger and just wanted to get out.
When we encounter grace in a person, not only is it obvious, but it’s obvious that it comes from somewhere other than this world. Grace is not natural; it is supernatural.
“So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins.” Ephesians 1:6-7 NLT
