Give. Love. Make Peace.

Give. Love. Make Peace. Extend Grace. 

......................Because life truly is too short to be spending it on anything less than God's grace.
Romans 12:18 As much as it depends on YOU....make peace. 
Psalm 34:14 Pursue peace with ALL men.

Grace is not mine to decide who to give it to or when. It's just HIS to give through me to WHOMever.  We are called to make peace.  We are called to love.  We are called to give.

  Jesus never withdrew His touch from those who needed it most and deserved it less.  He made no distinction between social status, peer groups, political standings, the rich, the poor, the sick or the well.  He simply gave unrestrained by opinions or judgments.  He simply changed lives with an audacious Grace that never showed differential regard for any one person.   Perhaps if we all look beyond ourselves and our need for Grace and begin to pour that same Grace we need onto others we will begin to see a supernatural healing permeate the environment.  After all....we are all broken people in need of a Savior.  We are all in need of Grace.  There is someone beyond your 4 walls who is in need of Grace. Someone who has no idea where to find the hope they need to keep going.  YOU have it to give.  We can be influenced by the world around us and allow it to rob us of giving and receiving grace or choose to be an influence and be the change agents that can transform lives and bring HOPE into the darkest of places.

Give without hesitation.
Love without reservation.
Make Peace.

Luke 6:38 Give away your life; you'll find life given back, but not merely given back—given back with bonus and blessing. Giving, not getting, is the way. Generosity begets generosity.
