Where Is Grace?

31 Jan

Where is grace when you let the door slam on the person behind you rather than hold the door open?

Where is grace when you park in the handicap parking spot for “just a few minutes” when you don’t have a placard?

Where is grace when you cut your server’s tip because the food took too much time coming from the kitchen?

Where is grace when you beat yourself up over something you did or didn’t do years ago when you didn’t have the wisdom you have now?

Where is grace when you punish the child for the sins of the mother or father?

Where is grace when we are more concerned with how many words a football player says at a press conference than how many words we say to our own children?

Where is grace when you’re in too much of a hurry to return the smile of the stranger on the street?

Where is grace?

Dear God,

You shower us with kindness and mercy because you love us, not because of anything we have done.  Help us show more kindness and mercy to one another and to ourselves. Help us find grace. Help us be grace. Help us give grace. Help us act gracefully.

Amen.
