Last Friday night I got to hang out with my cousin and her children.  We went to Hillcrest Baptist Church for their movie night.  Free pizza, drink, and popcorn for the movie!

The movie was, The Grace Card.

I had never heard of it.  Good movie.  Very good movie.  I encourage anyone that is dealing with a bitter heart, racism, anger, or unforgiveness, to see this movie.

In the movie, the Pastor challenges his congregation to REALLY love.

REALLY, REALLY, REALLY, LOVE . . . . . your enemies.

Not just the person that LIKES you.

But, that person that HATES you.

Do you love them?

The Pastor’s grandfather gave him a piece of paper that had been handed down from generations that was in a Bible.  It read:  “I promise to pray for you every day, ask for your forgiveness, grant you the same, and be your friend always.”

As we left the church that night, we were given, “A Grace Card.”

On one side a burgundy cross.

On the other side, “I promise to pray for you every day, ask for your forgiveness, grant you the same, and be your friend always.”  with a place for one to sign and date.

I have carried the card with me; and would love to have some made up one day, but since I can’t do that right now, I want you to know . . . . .

“I promise to pray for you every day, 
ask for your forgiveness, 
grant you the same, 
and be your friend always.”
