The Daily Breath of God

For everyone has sinned; we all fall short of God's glorious standard. Yet God, with undeserved kindness, declares that we are righteous. He did this through Christ Jesus when he freed us from the penalty of our sins. Romans 3:23,24 NLTIt seems that for most of us as we begin to grow and mature from birth we develop attitudes and therefore have actions that are often condemning. So to survive, we set up our own standards as to what we think is good and right for us. If we keep them we then have moments of feeling well about ourselves and when others do the opposite of our standards we find ourselves condemning them. Well here is some great news. In grace all of that is now over. Grace gives a sweet freedom of life without any condemnation because of the gift of Jesus the Christ. In this place the standard is giving undeserved kindness to everyone in our journey as we have received it from our Lord. On this new day enjoy the freedom in your emotions of his kindness and grace. You will not have to penalize anyone anymore for their less than outstanding attitudes. You will find it quite freeing.
