The cycle of days and seasons are a testament to grace. "the Lord said to Himself, 'I will never again curse the ground on account of man, for the intent of man's heart is evil from his youth; and I will never again destroy every living thing, as I have done. While the earth remains,  Seedtime and harvest, And cold and heat,  And summer and winter, And day and night Shall not cease.' " (Genesis 8.21-22)

God is faithful, not because we are good, but because it is His nature to be faithful. In spite of our enduring evil heart intentions, God showers us with His grace.

Grace and favor afford us an opportunity to reciprocate. Rather than allowing grace to become license for sinful indulgence, it can become an opportunity to become a grateful worshipper, and a blessing to those around us. As recipients of favor and grace, we can become administrators of it.

Savor His grace this day. Bask in the warmth of it. And, out of gratitude for it, freely dispense it to all you come in contact with today. May a dark and wicked world be warmer and brighter today because we served as conduits of His grace.
