The grace of God…

“The grace of God is unearned and unearnable, but if we ever expect to grow in grace, we must pay the price of a consciously chosen course of action which involves both individual and group life.”

From my morning readings in “A Celebration of Discipline”, by Richard J. Foster.

In other words, I can’t just rest on God’s grace if I want a really wonderful relationship with Him.  I need to work at that relationship, which means working at myself and what I bring to that relationship.  And I believe that at the top of the list is working on how I relate to my brothers and sisters.
