Thursday's Dose - 19th March 2015

God's Grace and Kindness

Today's Scripture

“You gave me life and showed me kindness, and in your providence watched over my spirit”- (Job 10:12).

Thoughts for Today

Inside each of us there is a hunger and a thirst for justice. We want to see the guilty person get his just due. Yet, when it comes to ourselves, we want mercy and grace extended in our direction. We may be deserving of the worst kind of punishment, but we long for someone to give us a second chance before harshly condemning us.

Although God is just in His ways, He also is merciful. In fact, God's Word makes it simple: "Mercy triumphs over judgment" (James 2:13). God would rather extend mercy toward us than the harsh consequences of judgment. That is why Jesus gave His life for us, so we would not have to suffer the consequences of sin. Jesus paid the debt we owe for our sin.

As believers pursuing the heart of God, we must realize that if this trait of grace and kindness is at the heartbeat of God, we, too, should emulate it. When someone sins against us, we should not judge him for his actions and sever our relationship with him; rather, we should lovingly approach him and seek reconciliation.

Instead of carrying around in our hearts a thirst for vengeance against someone who has wronged us, we should bestow upon him an abundance of grace and kindness, knowing that such an act can soften even the hardest of hearts. If we are living for Christ, we are living proof that His grace and kindness can transform a heart of sin into a heart that loves God.

Set a goal to demonstrate God's grace and kindness to everyone, for all men and women are in need of His life-changing compassion.

Prayer: Our Loving Heavenly Father, fill my heart with grace and kindness for the world around me. Thank you for hearing and answering my prayer. Gratefully, In Jesus Loving Name I Pray, Amen."

Have a Blessed Thursday and God Bless you.
