accept the grace of GOD. grow in the grace of GOD. and then share the grace of GOD with other people. colossians 4.6 (niv), let your conversation be always full of grace.
paul is saying here, “don’t demand perfection of others.” when you realize that you have been the recipient of grace, you need to be gracious to everybody else. don’t demand perfection of your spouse. don’t demand perfection of your children. don’t demand perfection of other church members. don’t demand perfection of business associates.
the fact is, we’re all in the same boat. we’re all in need of forgiveness. we need it desperately and GOD offers it to us. allow yourself and other people to make mistakes.
just a thought from the front porch…
