Portraits of (Extravagant) Grace

Usually it’s the pretty people, the almost perfect people--with the ‘just right’ features and the camera-ready smiles--who earn the spotlight. This is true in almost every arena of life. Well, except one. In the Bible God seems to have the opposite agenda. Every individual in his divine story has some serious defects in his character, some significant sin and shame hanging over her life, or horrific circumstances holding him back. The portraits God paints are of men and women in need of extravagant, offensive amounts of mercy and grace. And those are still the pictures he loves the most.
