Do you call your insurance company and ask them to raise your rates? Of course not! You thank God for the grace he seemingly gave you. As grownups, we tend to treat grace like cookies in a cookie jar sitting on top of the fridge where we can reach it, but out of reach of our little ones undeserving hands, saved for special occasions.
