All fall short


 We are often reminded that all fall short of the glory of God and must rely on grace. From our favorite General to the best Golfer. The greatest Coach or the Evangelist even a President or Priest - the list goes on and on. That is why we are to not look up to men but only one man stood the test of time Jesus Christ. Even as perfect as Jesus was he said only one was good his father who was in heaven.
 I would find no fault in him declared the magistrates but still he was crucified. It seems unjust but a lot of good people suffer and some die early. Some from disease or some in war time, some die because of stress just trying to survive. My hope is that we grow in understanding grace even if we fall short. Perhaps you have a loved one that seems messed up and it would be easier to judge them.
How about telling them about God's grace instead of putting them down.
 I believe more than ever we are reminded we are human not perfect. It seems there is always a gossip out there or some poison to fill our ears. We are reminded of the three monkeys hear no evil, see no evil and speak no evil. How can we escape from from evil by denying its existence or not partaking in it like the three monkeys. Bad news always seems to sell more than good news, frequently we are drawn into gossip. Jesus said "judge not less you be judged".
 I believe the year 2013 will be a year of rebuilding , faith will be tested but prevail. As we saw the dictators and wars come close to an end in 2012. It will be a new age of nation building , some will reconstruct their financial futures others their basic freedoms.
-peace .
