COMING UP SHORT

2 Daily Devotional Tuesday

“See to it that no one comes short of the grace of God; that no root of bitterness springing up causes trouble, and by it many be defiled” (Hebrews 12:15).

While it is something freely given by God, and received by us, grace does not fulfill its task until we freely extend it to others. To claim grace for oneself but to withhold it from others is to come up short. The tragic result is that the soul fattened on bitterness cannot pass through the narrow gate that leads to life.
