Grace can come at us sideways. When we are least expecting it, it showers us with surprise. In my novel Destiny’s Dilemma, one of the characters is utterly undone, when he receives grace. He is a bigot who finds himself at the mercy of African Americans. He is surprised by the grace they give him.

Many times it is hard for us to accept grace because we feel we have not earned it. Grace is not earned.

Remember when you give it. Grace is not given to those who deserve it.
