How does God measure success?

In the Bible, you'll find no lack of sinfulness, shortcomings, rejections, and broken people. People like Joseph, Rahab, David, Jeremiah, John the Baptist, The Samaritan Woman, Peter, and Paul. Yet, we don't think of these people as failures. Rather, we see them as people God transformed, turning their lack into faithfulness for His good.  

Study these eight biblical figures to see that God does the same for you. He takes what you or society perceives as failure and transforms you for His plan. God does not judge based on earthly standards. No blunder is too big for him. No mess-up is beyond repair. His goodness goes beyond and turns your missteps into miracles. 

What Others Are Saying

"Sharla Fritz has done it again! Her new Bible study, Measured by Grace, will challenge you to look at the way you view success and see if your vision is that of the world or God."

—Susan Bell, LWML Eastern District President, 2018-2022

"Sharla Fritz offers a gracious gift in her new study, Measured by Grace, to all those who feel moored down by their mistakes and mess-ups. We are reminded over and over again through this study of God's Word that our failures do not have the final say over our lives."

—Michelle Diercks, author of Promised Rest: Finding Peace in God's Presence

"Sharla has carefully done an amazing amount of research that will make the biblical characters we already know and love come alive even more as she digs deeper into their stories. She walks the reader through understanding the not-so-pretty sides of these biblical characters while also pointing us to God's grace, love, and forgiveness."

—Molly Dixon, online Bible study leader

God's . View of Success

Sharla made these 8 well known bible characters come alive as she offered insight and historical background, she walks us through how God views success as compared to the world's view. After finishing the book, I felt great comfort that God could use me in spite of my brokenness.

A New Bible Study!

I eagerly wait for Sharla to release a new Bible study book because I learn so much from her. She consistently and masterfully weaves together a mix of biblical history and wisdom, modern-day stories, dashes of humor, and clear, succinct study questions. Measured by Grace, her newest book, thoughtfully examines the biblical stories of eight far from perfect men and women including Joseph, Rahab, and Peter. Like us, their lives overflowed with blunders, failures, struggles, and sin. But, remarkably, God stuck with them, nurtured them, forgave them, and even helped them to do His good work. As Sharla reminds us on page four: “No blunder is too big for His benevolence. No gaffe too huge for His goodness. No slipup too large for His saving power. God can take all of our missteps and make them into miracles.” The book stands alone as a good, solo read, but it really sings as the foundation of a group discussion.

Grateful for this study

Sharla Fritz offers a gracious gift in her new study, Measured by Grace, to all those who feel moored down by their mistakes and mess-ups. We are reminded over and over again through this study of God’s Word that our failures do not have the final say over our lives. God steps into our brokenness and redeems our stories—what a comfort to know that God’s grace transforms our lives.

Easy to read and apply to my life

Sharla Fritz's new book, Measured by Grace, presents several characters from the Bible (Jeremiah, The Samaritan woman at the well, John the Baptist, etc) that from earthly standards appeared to be failures but from God's perspective were critical to (and successful in) sharing the Gospel with others. Sharla's gentle yet vivid writing style always brings the characters to life so they are more relatable. And in turn, the timeless lessons those characters teach become more relatable today. I love everything Sharla writes, and this book is no exception. The book's structure offers plenty of scripture, plenty of her personal anecdotes, and plenty of nuggets to think on and discuss so you can either read the devotions alone or in a study group. I highly recommend!
