Pointing fingers

10 Mar


Amazing grace how sweet the sound that saved a wretch like me.  Lord,  Thank You for Your grace that envelops all of us.  But grace isn’t about us.  It’s about You, Jesus, and what You did for us.   We have all found grace because of Your sacrifice but we have trouble showing it to others.  The truth is that none of us can escape Your grace because it is a gift that You continue to give us.  It has changed our lives because the burdens of sin and death have lost their hold on us so enlighten us so that we don’t bring others down for their mistakes.   Stop us from believing that our sins are not as bad as the sins of others.   Stop us from focusing on the rules of religion rather than an intimate relationship with God.   Stop us from pointing fingers at others for their mistakes according to our standards.   For everyone who exalts themselves will be humbled, but those who humble themselves will be exalted.  You were betrayed, persecuted and punished for all the wrong of this world.   So who do we betray when we persecute others?  What do we gain when we punish others for retribution?   Are our blinders so thick that we only see where people fail and we forget that we are all sinners?   Lord, illuminate this world with the light of Your truth so that we can give grace, mercy and forgiveness to all people just as You have given to us.
