Two of the most precious gifts God offers us are mercy and grace. Mercy means that we don’t get the punishment we deserve because Jesus paid our debt for us. When we repent and receive His forgiveness ….. our slate is wiped clean! Grace means we get more than we deserve. More love ….. more help ….. more miracles ….. more guidance. It’s interesting that both words are connected to thanksgiving ….. eg ‘Merci’ is French for ‘thank you’ ….. and ‘Grazie’ is Italian for ‘thank you’. Next time you receive mercy or grace ….. don’t forget to thank God! His grace and mercy never run out. They are new every morning!
