Everyday Grace - A Book Review

Everyday Grace:  Infusing All Your Relationships With the Love of Jesus is different than most self help relationship books.  Instead of offering advice and step by step solutions it helps you look at the heart and find where the problem lies within yourself.  

We all face challenges in life.  Sometimes it is hard to let things go.  We can say we forgive, but we hold on to things.  We remember the wrongs that have been done to us.  No matter how we tip-toe through life it is inevitable that we will get hurt and we will hurt others.

The question do we extend grace?  How do we offer the same love that Christ has extended to us?  As Christians we should be striving daily to be more like Jesus.  As the author points out we are a people that what we give depends on what we are given.  You scratch my back and I'll scratch yours.  There is so much wrong with this way of thinking and we need to reprogram ourselves to a better way.  I did not deserve the Grace that God extended to me, but He gave it abundantly to me.  Your co-worker or family member may not treat you right, but you need to offer them the same grace that was offered you through your loving Savior.

Through stories and biblical insights Everyday Grace is an encouraging read that helps us to quite trying to "fix" people and just extend love and grace.  You will feel refreshed and uplifted after reading this great book!
