Darco and I have been working on grace. Specifically myself demonstrating it. Throughout the Bible is speaks of grace that God demonstrates…nearly non-stop in many instances.
Well, if we’re to be Christ-like, and God is grace…then we’re to demonstrate grace, yes?
Personally, I look at the worst quality of my innate existence, and aim at what grace is in that medium.
I’m quick to pull the trigger, use words as weapons, and emotions at ammunition. If my mouth opens, or the keys begin to type, control can be lost easily.
So, how would I demonstrate grace when knowing this?
Silence. Learning that talking, typing, texting, etc…isn’t always the answer. If we wait in silence, patiently expecting the whisper in the breeze, we could be surprised at the final product. Sure, this isn’t the exact concept of grace for everyone.
As for myself though…maybe less really is more.
