How would our homes, families, and communities be different if we responded with gentle grace when others stomp on our last nerve? How could relationships grow if we get involved with humility, coming alongside to help, rather than looking down the nose and pointing the finger with judgment and a lecture?
Have you ever struggled with questions like, what is my calling? What am I supposed to be doing? What is God’s plan for my life?
Have you ever looked at your self, added up your good points, subtracted out your not-so-pretty traits, and then started in on all the reasons why God shouldn’t bother with you? Many of us can be tempted to see our faults and mistakes as things that will always hold us back, tethering our feet to the past and tainting our future.
