Max Lucado's Devotion: Grace Soaked
By Max Lucado - UpWords Ministries On March 25, 2014
Most people keep a pot of anger on low boil! But you aren't most people. Look at your feet. They're wet, grace-soaked. Jesus has washed your feet...he has washed the grimiest parts of your life.
To accept grace is the vow to give it. You don't endorse the deeds of your offender when you forgive them. Jesus didn't endorse your sins by forgiving you. The grace-defined person still sends thieves to jail and expects the ex to pay child support. Grace sees the hurt full well. But it refuses to let hurts poison the heart. Where grace is lacking, bitterness abounds. Where grace abounds, forgiveness grows.

So, let the hands of God wipe away every dirty part of your life. Then look across the room and wash someone else's feet. Let grace begin and continue in you!
