Prayerful grace

and forgive us our sins, as we have forgiven those who sin against us.  And don’t let us yield to temptation, but rescue us from the evil one. Matt 6:12-13

The Lord’s  prayer provides real perspective about grace.  If we recognize that we are recipients of grace ourselves  we are more likely to forgive those who hurt us. Thinking about the hurt that sin causes and the grace that delivers us from it provides motivation to resist evil and recognize temptation for the manipulative lie that it is.

Lord, let grace drive my choices, actions and relationships.
