What is Grace & Truth?

Grace & Truth (a blog Link-up, Linky or Link Party) exists to point people to Jesus! We hope this link-up will be a source of encouragement each and every week. It’s run by 8 Christian women (I know my math is bad, but can you believe that I’ve been saying 7 women, for 27 weeks? Not counting myself?! Oy! My poor kids…). If you’re a blogger our hope is that you’ll use this space as a way to meet new friends within the Christian blogging community. If you’re a reader our hope is that you’ll meet new bloggers that love Jesus just as much as you do! Most of all, we hope you’ll meet Jesus here.

At the beginning of each new link-up week (which happens to be Friday), the Hosts will post their favorite post of the previous week, to be “featured” (see below for directions on how to be featured!).

Off-topic for a second…

Really quickly, I wanted to extend the invite for everyone to join me in a series I’ll be hosting beginning this month. I have posted the invitation on several facebook groups already and gotten a great response. In fact, I’ve surpassed my goal of 75 contributors! I will not turn anyone away though, so if you’re just now hearing about it, please don’t hesitate to join us! 🙂

 

Featured Post for Week 30

Welcome to Grace & Truth Week 30! 🙂

If you’re new to Grace&Truth, welcome! If you’re a veteran, I’m so thankful you’re sticking with us! 🙂

Dr. Michelle has been featured on my blog quite a few times. She just always knows what to say, it seems. She had a letter asking how to love those who are tough to love. I have several people like that in my life, and as I said in a comment on her blog, I am often that person! Read Dr. Michelle’s post and tell me if you know anyone like this.

I’ve seen comments ranging from extreme anger, to hate, to compassion. When Scripture commands, “A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another” (John 13:34 ESV), what does that look like?
What about when the person is difficult to love?
I have reflected on God’s love and His command to us that we love others.
People can be difficult to love for numerous reasons:
-it is difficult for some to receive love
AND
-sometimes it is difficult for me to maintain a loving spirit towards others
Dr. Michelle

You’ve gotta go read the whole post. I know it will bless you and encourage you to go out there and LOVE.

Congratulations, Dr. Michelle! You totally deserve it! Again. 😉
