Signs You are Growing in Grace

Posted: 07/01/2011 in Personal Walk, Running the Race, Things I’ll Probably Plagiarize, Worth Checking Out

I was reading a blog I thoroughly enjoy and a twitter series by a gentleman by the name of Scotty Smith was mentioned: “Signs You are Growing in Grace”. Regularly on Provocations & Paintings there is a compilation of these sweet tweets… so as an homage, to an homage, on the glorious subject of God’s grace, and how we grow in it… I am going to ask for your grace as I participate in the time-honored tradition of blog-plagarism-imitation.

A sign you’re growing in grace is you work much harder at remembering names and forgetting slights.

A sign you’re growing in grace is movement from destructive cynicism towards redemptive engagement.
Anybody can spew.

A sign you’re growing in grace is that you’re less like a drive-by-shooting with criticisms & more of a healing presence.

A sign you’re growing in grace is evident when you receive feedback non-defensively and give it clearly & lovingly.

A sign you’re growing in grace is evident when people don’t feel like they have to walk on egg shells around you as much.

A sign you’re growing in grace is committing fewer homicides in your heart of slow drivers.

A sign you’re growing in grace is praying for our government rather than simply being cynical about our government.

A sign you are growing in grace is that you are more disgusted with your critical spirit than offended by others’ sins.

    That is definitely an eye opener. i’m glad you “plagiarized” the signs of grace here. I know I pray for God’s grace in my life, and I know that God has a lot of work left in me to do. 🙂

    I was just checking out your blog, Mike and I really like this entry.
    Remember our 7 hour conversations back in college on religion and Christ?
    He is so beautiful isn’t he. And an amazing example. I’m a Jesus fan too.
