Grace or Disgrace

The sudden realisation of your fortune, solely in light of others’ misfortune, is not grace, it is a disgrace. Stop telling God that you thank Him for keeping you alive whiles others have died, for keeping you healthy whiles others are sick. God does not seek to make others miserable so you can realise how fortunate you are. The only time grace invokes comparison is when you consider where you are now and remember where you have come from. Grace is when you earn something you did not deserve, not when you earn something others do not have, or have lost. Grace is not a zero sum game. The fact that I lost something doesn’t mean you have gained it. Grace is the abundance of opportunities for everyone to succeed, if not at one thing, at another. We are all made for different forms of greatness. Look for yours in you, not in others!
