Gift Wrapped in Grace

I couldn’t have asked for more than God in deliberate grace has surprised me with!   ~ Jim Elliot

We live in a world of unanticipated moments. When I think of the word surprise, I think of laughter and joy and unexpected gifts. But not all surprises are so pleasant. Some come wrapped in ribbons of defeat and pain and betrayal.

I expect that’s why most children love surprises so much more than adults. The ribbons are always right. As the world expands to include more and more experiences, we become more cautious about what lies beneath the wrappings. We learn that pretty packaging tells nothing about the present.

It’s different with God. He’s the giver of all good gifts. His intentional, deliberate grace is the most remarkable surprise of all!

Grace – re-gift it!
