Looking at Grace

I would like to share 2 things with you about grace.

The first is a post from Gentle Christian Mothers and is an example of one of the reasons a Christian mom decided to not to spank.  You can see more reasons in the rest of that thread.

The other thing I found on Facebook: (scroll down for comments)

I think I would change “Repentant or Not” into “Saved or Not” but I still feel that this gives a good explanation of the difference between Religion and the Gospel.  It is also a good explanation of the difference between the Law and Grace.

And as my friend, Rachel Sullivan-Nightengale, said,

Likewise God directs us to discipline our children–NOT threatening or punishing, which result at best in fear-induced outward compliance–but instead discipling them, gently teaching and helping them learn to do what’s right out of love for God.

We strive to imitate the way our Heavenly Father disciplines us, even as adults. He doesn’t punish us–Jesus took our punishment in full. He does guide us with loving patience at our slowness to learn, time after time.

Praise God for His abundant GRACE! May He help us mirror His grace toward our children.

About Hermana Linda
Hermana means sister in Spanish and Linda is my name. I was born in late 1960 to a mother who had traveled around the world and had been impressed at the baby wearing she saw in Africa and Japan. While in Japan she purchased the baby carrier in which she is wearing me in my avatar. By the grace of God, I trusted Jesus as my personal savior in 1983. He gave me a husband in 1987 and 2 sons in the early 1990's. All glory to God.
