Are you looking for grace in your life?
Phillips Brooks told the story of Alexander the Great, who one day received a friend asking for money. The man asked for ten talents, but Alexander had fifty delivered to him. When the man returned and said that ten would be sufficient, Alexander replied: "Ten are sufficient for you to take, but not for me to give." So it is with God's grace. God is generous to the utmost extreme, bestowing His grace freely on all who will receive it. Paul the Apostle received it during a difficult time in his life and ministry.
2 Corinthians 12:9, "But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore, I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me" (NIV).
