God's Measuring Stick
How are we measuring things?
By our standards? (yep) By comparison? (yep-- which is crazy to think we’d want to measure one fallen man to another fallen man, but it just shows how insecure we are). But the Bible says GRACE WAS GIVEN to us according to the measure of Christ’s gift.
First of all, the measure was NOT to measure us — it was to measure the amount of grace we’d receive. And secondly, it was measured according to “Christ’s gift” so isn't time we swap out our measuring stick and use God's?
