Scripture: John 1:16
From his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.
Thought for the Day: What is grace upon grace? According to William Barclay, the wonderful scholar from the last century, this phrase is referring to how grace comes to us as we need it. Grace is not one-dimensional, with only one means of expressing itself. Grace is multifaceted, with an ability of conveying itself in any circumstance. Too often we define grace so narrowly that we are incapable of seeing grace when it comes to us in unexpected ways – like a child laid to rest in a feeding trough.
Prayer: Transform my narrow expectations of you, O Lord, so I may see your loving-kindness at work in the most unanticipated places. Amen.
