A Picture of Grace
I just read a story that painted a perfect picture of God’s grace.
Hi, I’m Renee Swope with Proverbs 31 Ministries.
A three year old was watching two older girls playing with helium filled balloons. She told her mom she wanted one too. Without skipping a beat, one of the older girls said, “Here, have mine.”
The pre-schooler’s mom told her to say thank you and to hold on tight. Well, being three, she struggled with that last part and, before long; she screamed, “My BALLOON!!” as it floated away.
Before the little girl even had a chance to start crying, the other older girl came right over with her balloon and said, “Here you go!”
Wow! What a picture of GRACE! Just like those girls, God gives us a gift. Being human, we mess it up, lose it, or chase it away. But, God comes right back with a second chance to receive the gift He has for us!
