“The Law came in so that the transgression would increase; but where sin increased, grace abounded all the more” (Romans 5:20).
As followers of Christ, we are called to think and act in ways that transcend human nature. In fact, one of the most telling proofs of having experienced God’s forgiveness and boundless mercies is your willingness to offer it to others. The same energy it takes to be rude, critical, judgmental, and accusatory, can be utilized to extend, instead, love, patience, kindness, and other manifestations of the fruit of the Spirit. We are at our best erring on the side of grace and leaving judgment to the only One who knows all things.
