The peace produced by grace is a spiritual stability too deep for violence – it is unshakeable.
Fred Rogers who was known as Mr. Rogers sang to children of all ages “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” for years on his show Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. It’s a classic reminder of a call to friendship.
Who are our neighbors? Well everyone you meet. It’s more than the people who live around where you live. It’s important we understand that because it makes the world our neighborhood.
In my faith loving your neighbor as yourself is a serious thing. Offering people grace and kindness can be a tall order because there are some folks you like and a few you don’t like so offering them both love can be a challenge. We can be exhausted in being nice but it’s worth it.
My friends you are my neighbor just for visiting my blog. Liking my posts and commenting on them are a plus. For me, treating you all with kindness and being nice is something i’m hard wired to do. It’s also an extension of my extending grace to everyone. I do believe there are some who needs more grace and kindness because their lives have been tough.
Thank you for being my neighbor.
Give me grace over greed anytime.
Grace is a wonderful thing to give to others and yourself. It’s always available to those who need it.
“I refuse to be a Christian who is generous with damnation and stingy with Grace.”- John Pavlovitz
Grace to each of you today.
May each of us today be calm in the face of uncertainty, chaos and fear. Let cooler head prevail in situations around the world. No matter what storms you may be facing I hope you weather them the best way you know how to. Everyone I hope for grace, peace and love for each of you today.
Sometimes course correction is necessary to be sure things run smoothly in the future. It can also be a lesson in humility and hopefully grace. Knowing you need to make changes is a huge part of growing and learning.
