Be Grace-Full

May 12, 2019 Speaker: Jay Pound Series: Road Map For Relationships

Scripture: Matthew 7:1–7:5

What is grace?

  • Favor before it is merited
  • Favor beyond what is merited

If all enjoy receiving grace, why is it so hard to offer it to others?

2 Obstacles:

  • God-complex: We think we know what others deserve
  • Sin problem: we like looking down on others

How to be more grace-full (Mt. 7.1-5):

  • Recognize your limitations: lose the god-complex
  • Look in you own eye first: we need grace at least as much as everyone else

Conclusion: Since we cannot know what people deserve, we all have to lean one way or the other
