Do you believe that people are doing the best they can?
THE BIG IDEA:

Growing as a grace-shaped community is not only about God giving grace to a group of individuals. It's about us channeling this grace as we serve each other and allow others to serve us.

>> Treating others with grace means trusting that people are doing the best they can.


- Not fruit inspectors by cultivators who encourage and celebrate.

- We grow as we help others grow

- The journey of life is a give and take experience.


>> Grace-shaped community calls for definition of personal boundaries.


- know what you CAN and CANNOT do.

- Saying "no" is much beneficial than a half-hearted "yes".

- Healthy personal discernment builds healthy community.


>> Grace holds people accountable.


- Unity invites our vulnerability.

- Grace flows both ways to facilitate individual and community growth.

- Accountability is engaging with people, encouraging and praying for others.
PRACTICAL APPLICATION:

This week think of one person you might serve either in this church or in your workplace. Make the intentional choice to:

a) withhold judgement or gossip,
b) define a small way you can serve that person,

c) remain connected with the person by checking in with them, motivating them and praying for them.
