The Blessing of Others – Often the believers who face or have faced difficult challenges tend to have experiential revelation of God’s provision, peace, and sacrificial love. Yet these are often the people the Church marginalizes. When we show preference for certain types of people, we risk missing out on the blessing of their strengths within the Body of Christ. We need to understand that hurt drives division between different types of people. When we live as divided people, we are living under the banner and identity of hurt and all that implies. Living in mercy means we value the grace of God by which we daily stand. When we understand how critical God’s grace is in our lives, we can’t help but see how important His grace is for others we do not understand.
