Have you ever received an unexpected gift and wondered why? It wasn’t your birthday or a traditionally gift-giving holiday. When you asked the giver she said, “Oh, just because you are you!” Your preciousness elicited in the giver a desire to give “just because.” Grace is our gift from Spirit because we are God’s children. We don’t earn grace nor do we have to show that we deserve it. It’s a “just because” gift.
