A Simple Act of Grace

The man began to talk with me about things of which he had no clue. He did not know that my background, education, and experience informed me that he was utterly wrong. 

His topic was not a big deal. It was not theology or Biblical truth. 

Still, he was severely misinformed about a topic that I knew well. 

I only smiled and said, “yes, huh,” and “wow.” I let him speak and never once got angry, corrected him, or made him feel bad about his ignorance. That may not sound like much, but it took everything within me to hold my tongue. 

One simple act of grace is treating people kindly when misinformed about insignificant things.
