Day 278~ Grace Brings Contentment

This was my teabag this morning.
It nearly made me cry.
Then it sunk in a little deeper, and I was inspired.
Sometimes life is hard!
Sometimes when you see people's true colors, you realize they never were who you thought they were!
And, it stinks.
But, you know what?
When you extend grace, even when it feels like it is undeserved, you're becoming more like Christ.
You're loving others like God loves you!
I, a fallen sinner, never deserved the grace God gave me!
Yet, He gave me His grace!
Who knew that 3 simple words printed on a teabag would bring such wisdom?
Reminding myself throughout the day to extend that precious grace was a thousand times better than dwelling on the hard, rocky places and the hurt caused by hard-hearted people that I can't change.
In the end, it made for one beautiful day!
So I challenge you to extend a little grace and feel the contentment that comes with it!

To extend grace to others as Christ extends it to us. That's what it's all about. Thanks for the reminder.
