Grace for Others


Remember when you were in grade school and someone else got picked to be teacher’s helper?  Remember when your friend achieved an “A” when you only received a “B+” on the final math test? Remember when you found out someone was making a higher salary?


Were you thankful?


“It is delightfully easy to thank God for the grace we ourselves have received, but it requires great grace to thank God always for the grace given to others.”  James Smith

  1. It makes sense to me. When we are happy for others good fortune, we build on our own happiness, and create good fortune for ourselves. We do indeed reap what we sow. Thank you for the reminder. It’s so easy to miss out the little things that make a big difference.


    • So true – building our happiness is about building someone else’s happiness. Sometimes the first impulse is to satisfy our needs first – think of shopping on one of those “sales” day. Frightening!!!


  2. Life has taught me over and over again that there is always someone who is and does better than I and also that I have succeeded where others didn’t do so well. A helping hand to those who are struggling, congratulations to those who excel always brings joy and satisfaction–even a inner smile to the heart.
