From Morning Prayer


From Morning Prayer

And incidentally from the First Letter of Peter:

1 Peter 4: 10-11a As generous distributors of God's manifold grace, put your gifts at the service of one another, each in the measure he has received. The one who speaks is to deliver God's message. The one who serves is to do it with the strength provided by God. Thus, in all of you God is to be glorified through Jesus Christ.

What really struck me this morning, although I know it sticks somewhere in the back of my mind most times, is the wonderful notions that we are "generous distributors of God's manifold grace." That is, we are instruments of His grace, sometimes unwillingly, most times unknowingly, but nevertheless it is true. Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could be more aware of it more of the time and act in accordance with the responsibility that implies? I mean many organizations and groups have dress codes and requirements for the people they send out to represent them to the public. Shouldn't our dress code be love, patience, humility, and prayerfulness?
