Showing Grace is a tall order for sure.
Grace is a little prayers at dinner. it’s a much higher calling.Look for ways to shine your grace toward others and inspire them to do the same. Passing on grace makes the world a better place. To show grace isn’t about being kind now and then.Grace is something we do not deserve but receive in ways that are freeing. When we give someone grace who needs to be forgiven, we forgive them. When we offer grace to someone who can never pay us back, it is REAL.Some people don’t deserve it but that is what grace is. Grace is an undeserved favor.
I have a friend who many times I feel does not deserve a favor , & consideration because she speaks without thinking ,has no filter. She speaks bluntly,very opinionated , a very unhappy soul.. It is a struggle to give her grace during these moments . I get so frustrated .I truly pray that she can come to realize how unhappy & unpleasing she may be to others and hope she comes to realize if she let go of her anger she may just experience happiness.
It seem to me that being so angry or so unkind to others takes so much more out of us .Negativity is not a good atmosphere to be in or live in.
Life changes when you begin to embrace grace. You will grow through your days with his grace on us, he even gives to us who don’t deserve it. In order to give /show it we must understand in our own life.. It is so hard to comprehend grace at times and to the full extent. I struggle at times. I have noticed my growth and how free it feels & continue to grow daily. Everyone is capable of adding more grace to their life . . If someone is upset or ‘did’ you “wrong,” it’s never wrong to do what’s right. Some times when situations like this apprear in front of me ,I just say nothing at all, underneath my breath I give grace and say a little prayer. How heavy their life must be carring that around..
. Perhaps others will practice grace & forgiveness as well..Be the person that not only is graceful in life’s moments when were upset with someone or a situation., but , be the person who shows others the meaning of grace. When you don’t want to show someone grace, when you think they didn’t make the best decision-, think again.- We’ve all heard “But by the grace of God, .( lets embrace that.) I am not saying its alwys easy. However I do know each time I do- it does gets easier, one moment at a time.
