I have heard the phrase said before:
"The awful grace of God"

Does this mean awful, or does it mean awful.

I don't know. Either way, it scares me. 

I have been working on giving my kids grace.  This is hard because in my opinion, on any number of days, grace is not what I think they deserve. They deserve my righteous indignation. Right?

God is not lacking in administering his fair share of righteous indignation, so why should I be?

Well...I am not God. 

( a loud guffaw should follow)

no, really...I'm not.  but sometimes I play the part. Sorry to disappoint.

(does your computer ever sound like it's taking pictures of  I guess I need a new computer;  or I am really paranoid)

waaaaaaay off subject. sorry.  I get off track sometimes.

Anyhow, back to grace.

I don't understand it, and I don't show it nearly enough; but it truly is the foundation of our faith. Isn't it?

Is it the foundation in your faith. And what does it mean?  What does it mean to you? I'd like to know.

  1. I don't have the picture-taking sound, no...but now I'll be looking out for it.

    Many times I feel like the man Jesus forgave all the debt who then went out and demanded repayment from another (Matt 18).

    It seems at times, when I am the most ungracious, it is when I am feeling the most condemned or shaky in my standing. I think we have to really KNOW that we are right with God before we can really pass it on to others.

    Kind of hard to explain.
