Grace Providers

John Ortberg has written an excellent book, "Love Beyond Reason."

Here's a quote from it.

"Grace providers notice things about you; they pay attention
to your heart and life.
Grace providers speak truthfully to you - both easy words and hard. Grace providers are not people who only say what you
want to hear, but they speak the truth in love. Grace providers simply never cease to love you. They see beneath the surface; they see the darkness as well as the goodness in your heart.
But when they see the darkness they do not pull away.
They are not repulsed. They move toward you. You may be a
rag doll, but you are God's rag doll, and grace providers
never let you forget it."
( Love Beyond Reason, John Ortberg. Kindle Cloud.)

May we each be providers of grace to those around us- like it says in 1 Thessalonians 5: 13- 15 "... Be at peace among yourselves.
And we urge you, brothers, admonish the idle, encourage
the fainthearted, help the weak, be patient with them all.
See that no one repays anyone evil for evil, but always seek
to do good to one another and to everyone.
