I read these stories in the Bible, and they remind me that this life we live with God is all grace. It’s all a gift. We marvel at how Israel missed this grace. But how easy is it for us to do the same thing with Jesus and the life of grace we live? There is simply nothing in our lives that we have or will possess that we haven’t been given. I dare you to mention one good thing in your life that you haven’t received from God as a gift. All these whispers of Jesus are whispers of grace, of God’s goodness to undeserving people.
