"grace" is harder then "law"

it is harder to live in grace, than it is to live in law

it is harder to forgive, than it is to judge
it is harder to love, than it is to hate
it is harder to include, than it is to exclude
it is harder to engage, than it is to ignore
it is harder to share, than it is to hold
it is harder to accept, than it is to reject
it is harder to welcome, than it is to walk away

it is harder to live in grace, than it is to live in law.

A paradox, indeed. The deceiver would certainly like us to believe it's more difficult to live in grace and, when our hearts are focused inward, it appears that way. The ironic twist is how much more work it takes to live in the law than to let go of control and live in grace.
