These past few days a series of events have led me think about the human tendency to make mistakes that require us to extend grace and mercy to others, just as God extends that grace and mercy to us when we deliberately choose sin. The primary difference is intentionality:
- Sometimes, that means letting something go, for the sake of the relationship.
- Sometimes, it means giving the other person the benefit of the doubt.
- Sometimes, it means adjusting the nature of the relationship itself.
