- Our goal everyday should be to show to others the same grace and the same mercy that God has shown us. We might not think they deserve it … but neither do we.
- Churches ought to be competing to “out-grace” their rivals.
- I hate the fact that Jesus saw a need to add the ungracious older brother into the story of the Prodigal son. I’ve played the older brother too many times in my life.
- It’s God’s grace, and He can give it to anyone He chooses.
- The church should love the blue haired 16 year-old teen who looks like he’s just crawled out of a tackle box as much as they do their blue haired little old ladies.
- Everyone is important to God. He loves the man in prison just as much as He loves me. God loves the homeless man just as much as He loves me. God love the unemployed on welfare as much as He loves me. God loves the 3-time divorcee as much as He loves me.
- Jesus met a woman who had been married five different times and was shacking up with another man. Yet Jesus found her incredibly important and salvation worthy.
- If God can forgive me of my sins, then I have no right to hold a grudge against someone who’s wronged me.
- Grace should be Christianity’s best gift to the world.

(COMMENT OF THE DAY: jerriann said… “If only you knew the real me, like God does, you wouldn’t like me, you would find nothing good in me. Without Christ, I am every sin He paid for. We never really know what other people are dealing with. If we can begin to see, as God sees, then we could come to understand the love that God has for His children. Hurting people hurt people.Ephesians 3: 19 and to know this love that surpasses knowledge – that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Amazing Grace.”)
