Grace

wondering… about grace…

Wondering… about grace…
and whether I was a picture of it today…
in the Bible class full of fourth graders…

When a simple word game to earn a ticket for a chance to win a prize… turns hearts to cheating… and lying… is it grace to discipline…? or overlook the offense…?

I’m wrestling with my hard core stance today…
hard core to the point of taking back a ticket given…

Can discipline be grace…?
Can exposing sin…? be grace…?

And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, 
and we have seen his glory, glory as of the Son from the Father
full of grace and truth.
John 1:14 ESV
Jesus… the One we are to emulate when it comes to grace… also came full of truth…
Truth called for the accusers to examine their own hearts… Let him who is without sin… be the first to throw a stone…

The accused adulteress… experienced the grace of forgiveness poured out… but she also received truth… Go… and from now on sin no more

So I’m wondering… Where on the spectrum… did I fall today…? when it comes to… grace vs. legalism…? truth vs. complacency…?
Was I a picture of grace today…?
Lord… only You know… graciously reveal the truth…
that I might know better… and do better…
Amen…
