The Compassion of Grace
Praise the LORD, O my soul and forget not all his benefits – who forgives all your sins, who redeems your life from the pit and crowns you with love and compassion.
Psalm 103:2-4 NIV
Sometimes during all the hurriedness of our days we forget the magnificence of all the benefits of God’s grace that have been given to us. Praise the LORD, O my soul and forget not all his benefits. When that happens graciousness usually leaves our emotions and in comes a less than stellar attitude to replace it. Think of the rejoicing we can have over our ability just to see, to hear, to feel and how love and compassion? God’s grace has been given in Jesus Christ so that we receive forgiveness for all our sins. Think of this, because of his grace there is now no condemnation for those in Jesus Christ (Romans 8:1). Living with a heart and attitude of love and compassion could refresh all our relationships and change the direction of our home, our community and our nation. Today delight in his grace for all that you are, all that you have and all that has been forgiven. Open your heart and your mouth, lift up your hands and praise your Lord! Then feel free to do to others what he has done for you. Enjoy!
