Saving Grace

There are so many people in the world who long for a little grace, but you might not recognize them right away. Some are outwardly bitter and angry, while others are inwardly suffering from a quiet desperation. You may be thinking, if I don't know who needs grace, then who should I give it to? The answer is everyone - absolutely everyone deserves grace.

I know it can be difficult to show some people grace because they have hurt us.  It is easy to judge their behavior and distance yourself from them but, be rest assured, they have an untold story. And if they had the courage to tell you their story, I know you would offer them grace. It's time to start offering people a lifetime grace card because you don't understand their burdens.  After all, we shouldn't be saving grace, we should be freely giving it.
