We are using the ELCA World Hunger Lenten Study for our Wednesday Bible study during Lent. As we considered lesson 2, the question “what if” kept coming to mind. “What if” we lived a life that focused on the grace of God rather than the merit of humans? In other words, “what if” we lived in gratitude for God’s simply loving us, rather than trying to earn God’s love? Might there be a difference in the way we live our lives if we really trusted that God loves us first, before we could even begin to try and earn it? Would we be more willing to share lavishly and fight for justice for all because we see all as equally valued and loved by God?
What if? A good question to ponder and allow to transform our lives.
