31 Ways to Live in Peace, Day 27


Live in Grace

Accept it for yourself, extend it to others.  Peace comes when you accept that you cannot do enough or be enough to earn it.


Grace isn't picky.  Grace doesn't look for things that have been done that deserve love.  Grace operates apart from the response or the ability of the individual.  Grace is one-sided.  Grace is God giving Himself in full acceptance to someone who does not deserve it and can never earn it and will never be able to repay. ~Chuck Swindoll


*The moment we have to do something to make ourselves more acceptable to God, or the moment we have to have a certain feeling or attribute of character in order to be blessed of God, then grace is no more grace.*


“If all’s a gift then it’s not mine because of my intellect. The pressure’s off to be the brightest.
If all’s a gift then it’s not mine because I earned it. The pressure’s off to work the hardest.
If all’s a gift then it’s not mine because I’m good. The pressure’s off to be the best.”
