Monday Morning Learnings: Grace and Forgiveness

Grace.

Its what I crave most when my guilt is exposed.

The very thing I’m hesitant to extend when I’m confronted with the guilt of others — especially when their guilt has robbed me of something I consider valuable.

— Andy Stanley, The Grace of God

Mercy and forgiveness must be free and unmerited to the wrongdoer. If the wrongdoer has to do something to merit it, then it isn’t mercy, but forgiveness always comes at a cost to the one granting the forgiveness.

— Timothy Keller, The Prodigal God
