Today's reading: Mark 2:1-12 NIV
How have you experienced God's healing power in your life?
How can you be the answer to your prayers?
How can you bring comfort and healing to others?
Today we read from John 8:1-11 NIV.
We ask ourselves this:
How quick are you to judge?
What tends to set you off?
What cues can you give yourself to remind yourself to pause before you respond?
What does it look like for you to be a grace-giver?
How have you experienced gaffe stealers before?
Begin by showing yourself grace. Every one of us is a beautiful flawed human being. No less worthy of love, no matter what you have or haven't done. Accept God's grace for yourself. Then share that with others.
