Today, in the real of life I struggle with so many simple things. I know that God has these standards, things like speak kind and love your enemies and all of that. It’s really easy for me to do great getting the big things right, stay married, don’t rob a bank, keep from murdering and so forth. But yet, it is so, so, so (and maybe one more so) hard to live out the most simple of things.
It’s not about just going through motions, following rules, and living right. Those are the results, not the cause. Today I remember that it is all because of God’s grace and merciful kindness to me.
