Sometimes we forget what’s important, and sometimes we fail to realize the importance of what we know. Sometimes, we know and yet we fail to live out what we know, and there are times when we fail to understand things we experience every day. Such is the case with grace. Grace is simply this, undeserved merit, being loved and forgiven when we aren’t deserving or worthy of either one.
Grace cannot be earned! Being good, following rules, doesn’t get it. The only thing that gets grace is the willingness to receive it. For so many including myself that’s the hard part. That’s the struggle.
I struggle with a lot of things, and I’ve often felt guilty over the fact that I struggle, and yet it’s often in the act of struggling that we learn the value of what it is we want and what we have.
It’s also how we learn to recognize what it is, and what it isn’t.
Grace is free for the taking, but it isn’t cheap…and when you have it, you have no choice but to give it away.
