Finding Grace

This is a quote from a heartbreaking video on Aids.

"Sometimes, in an effort to remind people of the cost of the Cross, we withhold grace until we're sure they understand their sin.

"But it's in the giving of our grace that we remind people that they need to go to Jesus to find their own. People understand their sin without our help. It's grace they need help understanding."

How true.

We tend to forget that we are ALL sinners - and without the constraints of our society, capable of all manner of atrocities.

Can you tell I am reading Donald Miller?

His comments on the Congo and the situation there have opened my eyes to that concept in a new way. Very humbling.
