Overflowing with Grace

A stark reminder from my devotional today... made me sit up and think about it a bit. I thought I would share...

What pours out of your life and leadership? Do your words and influence cause God's grace to overflow into the lives of others? Living deeply in God's grace is crucial to developing godly influence. As rain soaks into the ground, watering it and creating new growth, God desires His grace to so saturate our hearts and minds that grace will increasingly overflow to others through our words and actions. Reflect on the difference God's grace has made in your life as you begin your day today. 

The grace of our Lord was poured out on me abundantly, along with the faith and love that are in Christ Jesus.—1 Timothy 1:14 

Prayer: Jesus, You have lavished grace on me, bringing me from death to life, redeeming my past, and transforming my present and my future. I think of how desperately people around me need Your grace. Let Your grace to me overflow in my relationships with others. In Your name I pray, amen.
