I will never compromise Truth for the sake of getting along with people who can only get along when we agree. -D.R. Silva
Often when we argue it is hard to really hear what the other person is trying to communicate because there is a part of us that just wants to be right… or maybe that is just me *sigh*
What if we began to bend for one another instead of snapping at every little thing that ruffles your feathers?
What if we extended grace like Jesus did to the woman at the well?
Grace is unmerited and unearned.
Grace is given freely just because we would rather love than be right.
Grace is one of the hardest things to give and yet we accept it so quickly.
During this holiday season let us try to extend grace and bend instead of snapping at one another. Let us try to enjoy the moments we have together because life is far too short to be hot headed.
This Christmas vacation I am going to try:
-to accept everyone “as is”
-to not allow the little things to bother me
-enjoy the small moments
-love our crazy family (me being the craziest of them all)
What are your plans for this holiday season?
What are your biggest struggles?
