Do you know that feeling?
The feeling when someone decides to give grace instead of a grudge? The feeling when someone forgives, even when it is undeserved? The feeling when someone has every right to be mad at you and they decide to look past your mistakes and failures?
It’s a wonderful feeling. And here’s the thing – this mystery of grace has been given to us all in Jesus Christ.
And from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. – John 1:16 ESV
I do not at all understand the mystery of grace – only that it meets us where we are but does not leave us where it found us. – Anne Lamott
I want my kids to experience the mystery of grace more and more.
I want them to look past faults and failures. I want them to not hold grudges. I want them to give more than others expect.
Today’s Haigler Hospitality Habit: Give undeserved grace.
The meaning of life. The wasted years of life. The poor choices of life. God answers the mess of life with one word: ‘grace.’ – Max Lucado
Where would we be without God’s grace?
I come so undeservingly to Him and He meets me there every time, in the middle of my mess.
Now to give that same grace to those around me. Easier said than done. God, help us give undeserved grace.
