Grace Enough To Share
by Randy Chambers, 2014-09-30
Matthew 6:14-15, NIV: For if you forgive men when they sin against
you, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive men
their sins, your Father will not forgive your sins.
How shall I show grace to another, except that I first experience the Grace of
God? And how shall I truly learn to extend deep compassion and understanding for
another, unless I first discover the perfect compassion of Jesus? It is an
unfortunate reality that few of us are inclined to give grace and compassion as
Jesus did. Because of such a reality, many of us require a few well placed life
lessons, taught us by a loving Father, so that we may learn to freely extend to
others that which Christ has freely extended us. If I have eyes quick to notice
the weakness and sin of another, I may soon find my own weaknesses rising to the
surface to remind me who I am, and from where I have come. God tells us His
grace is sufficient for us, it is that and more—it is sufficient for us to have
enough to share it with all others as well.
