Dear servants, I have learned about God’s grace just like you but in different ways. In 2008, I had just finished my degree in human resources management, though my marks were not very good. It was during that time when God continued teaching me how His grace works.
He didn’t give me the chance because I was strong, had wisdom of the world, or because I came from a good and wealthy family. No way. He didn’t look at my background.
But for His glory He made me number one out of all other applicants. His grace paved the way for me. His grace marked the initial stages in my career, and now, three years later, I can still tell of His grace as my doorway to join Compassion.
So am I proud to be in this ministry? Compassion is my name, my pride, my rope, and my hope for many. Joyous? Yes. Blessed? Indeed, just because of His grace.
So, never qualify or disqualify yourself by the world’s standards. Just know one thing: You are seasoned and purposed to display His splendor to many generations. His grace covers up all other qualifications.
“But God chose the foolish things of the world to shame the wise; God chose the weak things of the world to shame the strong.” — 1 Corinthians 1:27, NIV
Prayer: Our Lord and Father God, may You teach all of us on how to live, knowing that Your grace covers our weakness in Jesus’ name. May You increase the amount of grace to whoever needs Your presence to overcome. Amen.
