Have you been missing out?
We sometimes miss opportunities to display God’s grace to the world around us, because we are looking for that “big” act rather than focusing on the simple, unobserved, not-so-glamorous, every day moments where we may choose to display grace to those around us. Moments like stopping to talk to your lonely neighbor, changing yet another diaper or cutting gum out of your son’s hair, emailing a friend with a word of encouragement, when your daughter steps on that “last nerve”, overlooking a friend’s harsh comment or choosing to forgive the offense of a spouse. All moments that seem so… insignificant but at the same time challenging! Moments that are rather significant to a God who glories in the small things (Zec 4:10).
May God give us eyes… His eyes… today so that we may see where we may dispense His grace to those He has purposely placed in our path and in our sphere of influence today.
Acts 11:22-24 The report of this came to the ears of the church in Jerusalem, and they sent Barnabas to Antioch. When he came and saw the grace of God, he was glad, and he exhorted them all to remain faithful to the Lord with steadfast purpose, for he was a good man, full of the Holy Spirit and of faith. And a great many people were added to the Lord.
