The grace-given give grace.
Is grace happening to you? Is there anyone in your life you refuse to forgive? If so, do you appreciate God’s forgiveness toward you? Do you resent God’s kindness to others? Do you grumble at God’s uneven compensation? How long has it been since your generosity stunned someone? Since someone objected, “No, really, this is too generous”? If it’s been awhile reconsider God’s extravagant grace: “Forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity” (Psalm 103:2-3). Why don’t you let grace unscrooge your heart.
You see, when grace happens, generosity happens. Unsquashable, eye-popping bigheartedness happens. You simply can’t contain it all. Let it bubble over, let it spill out, let it pour forth. You’ll find yourself brightening dark corners with splendor, with the promise of much more to come!
