A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re not as obsessive about getting credit, even when credit is very due. You chill more.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You don’t use your brokenness and weaknesses as excuses, but as fuel to drive you to Jesus.

A sign you’re growing in grace: No matter WHAT else is going on, the gospel is your reason for great joy and thanks today.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You don’t offer as many unsolicited suggestions, or unnecessary criticisms or opinions.

A sign you’re growing in grace: Even if they’re hard to be with, you love your extended family more than you used to.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You now value remembering other people’s names more than you obsess about hearing yours.

A sign you’re growing in grace: You’re not thinking about work yet, this holiday weekend. Your family has your attention.
