Grace vs Excuses Grace versus Excuses by Ruth Soukup

Grace can be many things:

  • It can mean you are stylish, have elegance, poise or charm.
  • It stands for good manners, politeness and respect.
  • You can bring favor or honor with your presence.
  • The biggest gift we have received by grace is the Love of God.
  • Grace can therefore only be positive and it brings light in the presence of others.

Excuses are:

  • Lame.
  • Mean.
  • Uncalled for.
  • Time wasters.
  • Pathetic.
  • Negative.

    I absolutely love this. I’ve pinned it to come back to again and again.

    Grace is something I’ve seen a lot of lately, and I’m grateful for that. It’s also made me more aware when I am NOT granting grace. I need to be more open minded, we all make mistakes, we are human and we don’t know everything. That doesn’t stop us from making decisions, sadly at times. But we aren’t infallible and I need to grant grace. Thanks for the reminder!

    I Amanda Nel 🙂 I really love this. Pinned it and tweeted 🙂 It’s easy to come up with excuses but it’s a discipline to choose grace.
