Are you one?
Over the last few weeks, I have had several moments in time that have reminded me that I really do want to be a “civil grace giver”.
A week or so ago at my church, the sermon was one of those moments. I would highly recommend you consider taking the time to listen to the message and see if you get any ah-ha moments as I did. You can click here to watch it.
To be able to be a Civil Grace Giver I believe that you will need to have charity (similar to grace), civility, and clarity.
Social media has many pros and cons. One of the cons I believe is that we say things that we would never say if we were face to face with someone. As Christians, we are called to love God and love others as ourselves. I would submit that if we did that just a little bit better than the world could be such a different place.
There are going to be people that you do not agree with, that is not the question. The question is, how will you communicate with them in a way that points to Jesus. Will you use kind words and listen to understand?
When you are posting on social media I would challenge you to pray before you respond on any post and especially when you are responding to someone that doesn’t agree with you. May our responses be a sweet fragrance and draw people to community and connection while pointing them to Jesus.
Your homework this week will be to rate yourself on a scale of 1-10 to see where you are at now. Then you can take a moment to engage in a way that will be helpful.
Next week I will be sharing two podcasts with you from https://followerofone.org/ and share a little more insight about how we can become a Civil Grace Giver.
As always, if I can help you with anything, I would love to connect.
