𝐓𝐡𝐨𝐮𝐠𝐡𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐃𝐚𝐲 – 𝐑𝐞𝐯 𝐉𝐢𝐦 𝐂𝐫𝐚𝐰𝐟𝐨𝐫𝐝
In recent weeks, we have seen many acts of kindness and caring for others, both small and large. We have seen many heroic and selfless actions.
We may think that we do not measure up to those people. We feel that we could have done more to help those in real need. As believers, we may feel that we have fallen short of God’s expectations of us. This is not how God sees it. Whatever we do, no matter how small we think it is, will be appreciated.
Many people feel that God cannot possibly accept them as they are, thinking that they have to prove themselves to God. The message of the Gospel is that God does accept us as we are, with all our faults and failures. God love does not depend on anything we do. God’s love comes to us by His grace.
We read in 2 Corinthians, verse 9.
‘𝐌𝐲 𝐠𝐫𝐚𝐜𝐞 𝐢𝐬 𝐬𝐮𝐟𝐟𝐢𝐜𝐢𝐞𝐧𝐭 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐲𝐨𝐮, 𝐟𝐨𝐫 𝐦𝐲 𝐬𝐭𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐠𝐭𝐡 𝐢𝐬 𝐦𝐚𝐝𝐞 𝐩𝐞𝐫𝐟𝐞𝐜𝐭 𝐢𝐧 𝐰𝐞𝐚𝐤𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬.’’
