A Thought: Giving and Receiving Grace.
Every single day there is opportunity to give grace. Because everyone is flawed, a word will be misspoken; misconstrued; misunderstood. Because everyone is flawed, a word can be received with gratitude because we need encouragement; understanding; compassion. So, the level which we live a joyful life is dependent upon the degree of GRACE which you give others, and to the degree of your pride, that you will recognize and receive Grace.
