February 21: Contentment in Grace Alone

            Being saved by grace alone can be surprisingly difficult to accept. In a society measured by achievements and productions, we think we must be constantly working towards God’s love. So we ask God to guide us towards contentment in grace alone. We seek peace in the knowledge that God accepts us on the virtue of love rather than on the amount of effort we show. May we feel a sense of calm knowing that, while good works are valuable in themselves, security is guaranteed through God’s care for us and for all of Creation.
