February 4th - Extreme Love...is Gracious, Not Rude.

I Peter 2:1-3
Wherefore laying aside all malice, and all guile, and hypocrisies, and envies, and all evil speakings, As newborn babes, desire the sincere milk of the word, that ye may grow thereby: If so be ye have tasted that the Lord is gracious.

Just when you thought you knew what being gracious to others was all about, God says, “Grow some more!” This is part of the mystery of grace, it meets you where you are, but it does not leave you like you were before you experienced it. Every time you see God’s grace in your life, it should cause you to want to be more gracious in your love, patience, tolerance, and speech, toward others. You will forever be in debt to God’s grace….get GROWING!
