DAY 98


I wondered why this wasn't spelled greatful. Then couldn't figure out what was good about a grate - a frame of metal bars for a fireplace.

Aha! Grateful is derived from the latin - gratus - also the derivative of grace.

Grace is the freely given unmerited favor and love of God.

He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time,” - 2 Timothy 1:9 NIV

Romans 3:24
Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus:

So next time you say you are grateful - know it is from the favor of God and His love.
