A home full of grace is also full of truth, because grace doesn’t make people less holy – it makes them more holy. Grace doesn’t make people despise or neglect truth – it makes them love and follow truth. Grace isn’t a free pass to sin – it’s a supernatural empowerment not to sin (Titus 3:5). By failing to address sin in each other’s lives we send an unspoken message: I’ll overlook your sin if you overlook mine. Grace raises the bar – but it also enables us to joyfully jump over that bar. Any concept of grace that leaves us – or our children – thinking truth is expendable, is not biblical grace.
