The Grace to Disagree...and Press On

Artwork for The Grace Awakening

Having a grace state of mind doesn’t mean life automatically becomes a super-harmonious downhill slide. Embracing grace doesn’t change our address from the real world to Fantasyland. Even though we, in grace, pursue righteousness and peace and joy and commit to building up one another in love, we will still face conflicts on occasion. We will still have to live with disagreements. Human nature, being what it is, will occasionally get in the way. Opposing opinions will surface, family members will see things differently, and co-workers will clash, even when both parties desire to do the will of God. As people of grace, our goal is not to force everyone to agree but to press on in spite of disagreements.
