This week is about grace.
I am still working on my most recent commitments:
- Eating frogs
- Getting to bed by 10:00 (although my wife would say that my current Netflix addiction isn’t very conducive to that)
- Keeping my budget daily.
I’m not adding any more specific to-do type commitments.
Instead, I’m going to focus on being generally more gracious. I need to give myself more grace. I need to push myself, but I also need grace. With any of the habits or goals I’ve set, I need to season it all with a grace that pushes me forward.
More than I realize, I also need to give grace to others.
I don’t harbor a ton of unforgiveness nor am I a hard-driver. You’d be glad to have me at your table if you’re a server. You wouldn’t hate having me for a boss.
Even so, we can always approach life, others, and ourselves with more grace. We can believe the best. We can serve instead of expecting to be served. We can give encouragement when it’s unexpected.
So this week… Grace.
