Treat everyone with grace

“On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: ‘The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.’ ”

Luke 24, New International Version


As we approach this holy Easter Sunday and we remember the glorious nature of Christ’s Resurrection, we should also remember the humble way in which he saved the world – not only coming to earth as a baby in a manger but leaving His earthly life as a convict on a cross. The humility should teach all of us how we should treat each other, with kindness and grace. We should seek God in everyone, especially in those less fortunate.

No matter our faith, Christ’s example teaches us humility and humanity; He teaches us about the grace of God and the goodness of man.

We would do well to heed those – not just on Easter but every day of our lives.
