Who will you be today?

by Rod Smith

Grace is easier to write about than it is to exercise, embody. But, it is essential for healthy living, the building of strong families, the well-being of dynamic churches, places of worship, even the prosperity of healthy businesses. Grace unifies, empowers, inspires, makes people free.

Grace helps me to overlook what I think is my due, my just desert, my rights. It assists me to forgive, to turn the page, the other cheek, and to move on, to let go. To be part of the solution and not the problem.

Grace empowers me to live with an open hand rather than a clenched fist. When under the motivation of divine grace I can forgive others, even if not requested. I can write off debts, offering gifts in place of repayment. A man or woman of Grace seeks to enrich the lives of those who seek to hurt him or her. Grace is evidence of divine intervention, of growth, goodness, and spiritual maturity

Yes, it is easier to write about Grace than it is to extend it at every turn, – which is, of course, all the more reason to try.
