During fall, the fields are ripe for harvest and farmers work day and night to bring in the bounty of the fields, the undeserved gifts from the hands of our loving heavenly Father. The selected readings in our Grace Bible reading plan are all about God’s grace for undeserving sinners. Like mercy, which we examined over the summer, grace is a form of undeserved love, but it is quite different.
Mercy is in the heart—a reaction of concern, care, and pity when looking upon someone who is suffering. But without grace, it is impossible to feel mercy. Grace is in the mind and in the will—it is the decision and commitment to love someone who does not deserve that love and may never accept, appreciate, or return it.
