Throughout our interactions with loved one, we have felt used, misunderstood, and taken for granted.
If we pondered over those thoughts, we might not want to attend future family dinners, reunions, birthday celebrations, or be seen with family members in public places.
The weekend is here and it is family time.
In order to not operate from past or current negative feelings towards love ones, let us operate from God’s Grace.1
Let us remember God’s unmerited favor to those who deserve only his wrath (that includes each one of us).
Remember “By grace you have been saved through faith; and that not of yourselves, it is a gift of God; not as a result of works, so that no one can boast” (Ephesians 2:8-9).
As we ponder over God’s grace to and for us, this should remind us that we need to lovingly show mercy, kindness,and forgiveness towards others.
