Undeserved Love

Yesterday, someone told me that I was "always" nice. Boy howdy, if they only knew the real me! I was humbled by this most undeserved praise. Yes, I try to be nice and kind and generous and loving. But I am certainly not "always" any of these.

Unfortunately, there are many times when I am cranky and stubborn and stingy and selfish. (I could rattle off many other negative characteristics, but you get the point.)

How thankful I am for those people who know the "real" me and love and accept me anyway! And how extremely humbled and thankful I am for the God who chose and saved me, even while knowing what a sinner I'd be. His love is truly undeserved. And yet He continues to give it freely. What amazing grace!
