Today we are starting week 3 of our Good Morning Girls’s Ministry of Motherhood book club with Sally Clarkson! This week we will be learning about the wonderful gift of grace!
I’d like to share with you one particular quote that touched my heart from this week’s reading:
“Each of us is designed by God to whisper his words to the hearts of our children so they will feel the call of God in their own lives to become ‘fishers of men.’ Yet we must always remember that our children, like Peter, will never be perfect. Each of them needs for us, like Jesus, to extend to him or her the gift of constant love, grace, and forgiveness. And we can only do this by relying continually on the grace of our own relationship with the Lord.” - Sally Clarkson
This week I’d like for us to focus on ways we can extend the gift of grace to our children, husband, friends etc. I love how Sally reminds us that our children will never be perfect……and neither will we for that matter. We ALL need to learn to extend the gift of grace to each other. Let’s be mindful this week to exercise the gift of grace with those in our lives. Let’s look for ways to extend grace and pray for opportunities to exhibit grace to our children to help them understand what grace means.
Today we are going to watch part 1 of Sally’s video on the Gift of Grace! I pray you are as blessed by her words on Grace as much as I have been!
