A young boy wrote a letter to his mother:
For cleaning my room: 25c
For doing the dishes: 25c
For taking out the trash: 25c
For cutting the grass: 25c
The mother came home and read the note. She then pulled out the dollar and placed it with his note. She then wrote her own note.
For carrying you 9 months: No Charge
For staying up all night with you when you were sick: No Charge
For helping you with homework when you didn’t know how to do it: No Charge
For working 2 jobs so you can have those nice shoes and food on the table: No Charge
The son came home and saw the dollar. Then he noticed her note. When the mother came home that evening he said to her, “Mom, what else can I do for you?”
That is grace. That is freedom to help others because you have been given help.
