THE MASTER GARDENER: THE GOD OF GROWTH THE GOD OF GRACE Grace and Truth - "Grace only comes in the classroom of God's law."
"Consequences that lead to grace are an act of grace in themselves. So, in thinking about growth, leave room for people to fail. Reality consequences are not all that bad. They are part of God's plan."
Putting Grace and Truth Together
1. To have growth that makes life work, we have to seek God.
2. Grace means that we receive the gifts we need for growth to occur.
3. Grace does not come easily, and we do not naturally recognize it.
