I’d like to take a moment to talk about sweetness and bitterness. As we live and while we talk to and interact with others, people should be able to see the sweetness of God’s grace in our lives even when bitter things are going on. Grace is the sweet main feature, and the bitterness that happens in our lives is supposed to bring out the sweetness even more. I sometimes think of it like a batch of cookies: having a little salt in them enhances and brings out other flavors while highlighting the sweetness, but if there’s too much salt then all you can taste is the bitterness of the salt. We shouldn’t let bitterness overwhelm the sweet grace and make us salty.
