Five more points for Calvinists: “Doctrines of Graciousness”

Here’s an article (on a different kind of ‘TULIP’) that can apply to many of our lives right away:

T — Total Humility

“God opposes the proud but gives grace to the humble.” (James 4:6; 1 Peter 5:5)

U — Unconditional Kindness

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. (Ephesians 4:32)

L — Limited Criticism

The Lord’s servant must not be quarrelsome but kind to everyone, . . . correcting his opponents with gentleness. (2 Timothy 2:24–25)

I — Irresistible Graciousness

Let your speech always be gracious. (Colossians 4:6)

P — Perseverance in Patience

Be patient with them all. (1 Thessalonians 5:14)
