Wise words we all should heed from Susan Irene Fox
The Lord is my Shepherd. He cares for me always. He provides me rest in rich, green fields beside streams of refreshing water. (Psalm 23:1-2)
God’s field of grace is vast and extravagant. His grace is much more indulgent than ours.
We tend to look through eyes that pick apart features and dress and tattoos and imagined wrongdoing. We focus on words, seize sides, take offense and collect misconduct like treasures.
Our own field of grace is quite small, more like a tiny, enclosed patch of yard than a broad, eternal meadow. We weigh our tokens of grace, judiciously measuring them on scales of our own ideas of merit.
