Grace

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Grace is a favorable disposition towards someone. It is a voluntary act of goodwill. God has extended His Grace (favor) to us that we should exemplify the same in dealing with others. They might not deserve it, but neither do we.

Thanksgiving
One of my favorite holidays is Thanksgiving. It is a time when we get together with friends and family just to celebrate our blessings. It seems to be less commercialized and there are no expectations of gifts. Most importantly, it reminds us to be thankful. I am so thankful to God for good health, wonderful family and friends, and His gift of Love.

S’more Love

‭‭1 John‬ ‭4:16‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Our world truly needs more love, so that we all help each other to be the best we can be. Our struggles often stem from our self-centeredness—protecting ourselves at the expense of others.

Fear

There are several definitions of fear, mostly concerning negative emotional states; but, my favorite is the profound reverence and awe toward God. This fear denotes a positive regard for the righteousness of our Creator, realizing that we are unworthy except by His Grace. As the recent song declares, all other fear is a liar.
