Grace is a gift

When a man works an 8-hour day and receives
for his efforts 8-hour' pay, that is a wage.
When he competes with an opponent and receives a trophy for his superior performance,
that is a prize. When he receives something in recognition for his services
or achievements, that is an award,
but when a man can earn no wage,
can win no prize, and deserves no award -
yet receives such a gift - that is unmerited favor.
That is underserved kindness -
That is GRACE!
