Living a life with Grace….

by Rod Smith

dsc_0642Grace is easier to write and preach about than it is to exercise and embody. But it is essential for healthy living, for the building of strong families, for the well being of dynamic churches, places of worship, and even for prosperity of healthy businesses.

Grace helps me to overlook what I think is my due, my just desert, my right. It assists me to forgive, to turn the page, and to move on and let go. Grace Offer and receive Graceempowers me to live with an open hand rather than a clenched fist. When under the spell of divine grace I can forgive others, even when forgiveness is not requested. I can write off debts, even offering gifts in place of the repayment of the debt.

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