Blurbs of Grace

The Opposite of Love

The opposite of love is not hate. The opposite of love is indifference. Love hates. Love hates wrong. Love hates hurt. Indifference on other hand… Indifference does what it pleases, shrugs its shoulders, and says, “Who cares?” Indifference whispers, “It’s not really worth it.” But not love. Love whispers, “It’s worth it.” Love echoes over all creation, “I care.” Love urges, “Care.” Love urges, “Love.”

1 John 4:8
Anyone who does not love does not know God, because God is love.

Extend Grace

Extend grace to others. You never know when you will need grace extended to you.

Why is it that it often takes a person to die for others to consider what they said while they lived? Don’t wait. Consider your loved ones words today.

John 2:19-22
Jesus answered them, “Destroy this temple, and I will raise it again in three days.” They replied, “It has taken forty-six years to build this temple, and you are going to raise it in three days?”
But the temple he had spoken of was his body. After he was raised from the dead, his disciples recalled what he had said. Then they believed the scripture and the words that Jesus had spoken.

Commit to do the Possible

God is not calling you to do the impossible. He is calling you to do the possible. Commit to do the possible and trust God to do the impossible.

Looking for God

God is often clearly seen where we least expect to see Him.
