The Way We See Ourselves; The Way We See Others

Having experienced God’s grace, we are called on to extend that grace to others. The evidence of whether we are living by His grace is to be found in the way we treat other people. If we see ourselves as sinners and totally unworthy in ourselves of God’s compassion, patience and forgiveness, then we will want to be gracious to others.

Jerry Bridges, Transforming Grace (Colorado Springs: NavPress, 1991), 196.
