Bible Verses Genesis 1:27 God created us in God's image.
1 Corinthians 15:10 I am what I am by the grace of God, and God's grace upon me is not in vain.
Galatians 5:22-23 The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, generosity, and self-control.
We are called to live into our potential as God's people. We do that when we are true to God's values. In contrast, it's so easy to fall short of our potential and to cause great harm to ourselves and others. We live in pain, and we cause pain, when we allow our self-centeredness to pull us away from God. But God's grace is sufficient to heal us and lead us on God's path.
When we live by God's grace we are happiest and we bring joy to those around us. Living by God's values helps us be our best and do the best for the world. Let's always remember that we are made in the image of God, and God's grace upon us is never in vain. Let's ask God to guide us and teach us, and let's trust God's grace to carry us.
