So as I’m sitting in chapel, it occurs to me that both mercy and grace come into the answer to the lament poetry. We have no right to either of these, and yet, we ask for, and in some cases expect, grace from God without having done anything to deserve it. Which is sort of the definition of grace.
It was rather a message of “get over yourself – you’re there to learn”, so I need to realize that people much smarter and wiser than myself have done a great deal of study in these areas. Perhaps the answer for the future is to pray before disagreeing and ranting onto this blog about something I don’t agree with – God may have a few choice words to share that may shed some light on things that I haven’t yet considered. Then write it down.
