(God) is kind to the ungrateful and wicked.
Common grace, as an expression of the goodness of God, is every favor, falling short of salvation, which this undeserving and sin-cursed world enjoys at the hand of God; this includes the delay of wrath, the mitigation of our sin-natures, natural events that lead to prosperity, and all gifts that human use and enjoy naturally.
Father, thank You that You are not like us. You are good, extremely good to all people.
You provide all that everyone needs daily. Whether people have bowed to Your Son or not. You keep this world by Your grace.
The bent of this world is everything must be earned. The bent of Your Kingdom, only by Your grace.
People may boast with their lips or think in their minds ‘I have become wealthy by my own strength and by my own ability.’ However, that is not true. Everything everyone has ultimately come from You.
Thank You for common grace. We wouldn’t be alive and doing well without it.
You are truly the God of all grace. Amen
May God give you great comfort in the truth of common grace.
