Grace of God

From 21st Century Christian‘s e-Teacher Digest:

“When a person works an eight-hour day and receives a fair day’s pay for his time, that is a wage. When a person competes with an opponent and receives a trophy for his performance, that is a prize. When a person receives appropriate recognition for his long service or high achievements, that is an award. But when a person is not capable of earning a wage, can win no prize, and deserves no award – yet receives such a gift anyway – that is a good picture of God’s unmerited favour.
This is what we mean when we talk about the grace of God.” –G.W. Knight

Not the last word, nor the fullest, about grace, but a good word, indeed.

J. Randal Matheny

Be pithy.
