Grace & Caterpillars

“Grace means we don’t need to memorize all the excuses anymore.”

– Bob Goff

I’ve lived both sides of this statement. I’ve experienced grace and I’ve memorized excuses. My life is proof that “grace makes beauty out of ugly things”.

They say that the DNA of a caterpillar does not say, “hey, I’m a caterpillar.” The DNA of a caterpillar says, “I am a butterfly.” It’s DNA does not talk about the past or the present – it talks about the future. What it is becoming.

Let’s all stop memorizing the excuses. Let’s apply grace liberally and move into what we are becoming.

To do that we need to each answer this question:

What are you becoming?
