It’s called transformation, and it’s a wonderful thing, eh?

Standard

Sometimes some of us have more people telling us who we are not than who we are. Judgment is a hard thing to escape, but grace is a territory all by itself. When you tell someone their identity in the face of bad behavior, you’re giving them an opportunity to see something. You’re telling them who they are. You’re telling them how the Lord sees them, what the Lord loves about them, and you’re giving them an opportunity to rise up, to begin to see themselves differently. It’s called transformation, and it’s a wonderful thing, eh?

(from The Epiphany)
