Grace is the theme of the gospel message, It’s the logic behind God coming to redeem us.
And it’s how we can experience the good in spite of our bad.But there’s something everyone forgets. Literally.
If today I’m good at my job, or my marriage–earning my keep, as it were—what happens tomorrow when I’m having an off week (or year)? Is everything tallied together like a giant ledger?
No. We remember what we see, and we forget the past.
But grace undoes that.
Grace pushes us to forgive and accept even if its not merited. And, as it is sometimes the case, when we’ve forgotten what we’ve forgotten.
