Reflections Along the Jesus Way

June 6, 2023 – Quote for the Day:

“God’s grace is not about human perceptions of entitlement or justice.  It is perfectly natural to feel resentful about those who appear to be ‘getting away’ with something. Our sense of human justice cries out for them to ‘get theirs.’  We start this behavior early in life, as children we point out the shortcomings of others to authority figures such as parents and teachers, hoping they will be punished and penalized.  There is, of course, one person whose shortcomings we do not point out to the authorities – our own.”
