Grow. In. Grace.


Every day we live, we are presented with more opportunities to ‘grow in grace’. And we must always be open and receptive to them all. Knowing is not enough; we must apply. Wishing is not enough; we must do. A grandmother celebrating her fiftieth wedding anniversary shared the secret of her long and happy relationship: ‘On my wedding day I decided to make a list of ten of my husband’s faults, which for the sake of our marriage I would overlook. I never did get around to listing any. Each time he did something I didn’t like, I’d say to myself, “Lucky for him that’s one of the ten!”‘ Now there’s a very wise lady!

“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment”

Physical intimacy may bring us together, but growing in grace will keep us together. So when someone upsets you, instead of responding with angry words or angry silence 😊, remind yourself that God is giving you another opportunity to ‘grow in grace’. And if you don’t do too well with some of the opportunities he sends, don’t worry, he will keep sending more until you get it right!😊

Resentment is one of the most expensive luxuries you can indulge in. Far more expensive than a night in five star hotel, or even a weekend at the Bahamas. A deep-seated grudge eats away at your peace of mind like a deadly cancer destroying a vital organ. In fact, there are few things as sad as a person who has harboured a grudge for years. Without forgiveness, life becomes an endless cycle of resentment and retaliation.

One of the secrets to a long and fruitful life is to forgive everybody, everything, every night before you go to bed. It’s the key to having personal peace. So, start getting serious about the Bible admonition: ‘Grow in grace.’ 2 Peter 3:18 KJV’

Be Inspired By Grace! Have a blessed day 😊

  2. Thank God for grace! It’s never an excuse to sin but should be a reminder of how good God is to forgive us when we honestly fall short. And that reminder of his goodness should push us to want to do better and get it right the next time…Good post!
