Grace isn't natural. I want to punish those who do wrong in my eyes. It might be with judgement, with my silence, or even with pity. I want them to get what they deserve. But when it comes to me, I want to be shown grace every time. Isn't that the heart of selfishiness? I want these things for me, but I'm unwilling to show them to others.
This weekend, when that person is getting on your nerves, or you can't take what they are doing for one more minute. Or even when you've failed your own to-do list, practice grace. Take a deep breath, and let it go. Give them the listening ear they want. Give yourself a little grace and ask for some help with that list.
Practice grace. It's not natual, and it's going to take some time to learn. Come back Monday with your grace story--I'll be sharing mine.
