People are often judged by what they do or do not have. In ancient times it was no different.
Perceptions and judgements abounded over every aspect of a persons living, much as they do today. Elizabeth’s understanding of how God had intervened in her situation meant that her disgrace as she and others saw had been taken away.
She saw disgrace God saw her value, and her unique place and contribution in the ongoing story of his kingdom.
Christ overcomes every disgrace perceived or real with the abundance of his grace.
What disgrace is keeping us from seeing ourselves as God does as those with our own unique place and contribution to make in the ongoing story of his kingdom.
