"Our God is a God of grace, and does not exclude anyone from the Kingdom. We do it to ourselves. We do it every time we struggle with self-condemnation or question whether we’re enough. We exclude ourselves from God’s grace every time we have to be in control, be right, or have all the answers. We do it every time we carry grudges, anger, or resentment. We do it every time we make judgments about others’ belief, choices, or lifestyles. We exclude ourselves from God’s grace every time we let our egos get in the way and we choose not to do the work of reconciliation and healing."
