Wednesday’s Word – Grace


There are many definitions for the word “grace” but in the context of a synonym to kindness, the one most often used is “the quality or state of being considerate or thoughtful” (Merriam-Webster). 

The kindness of strangers

Under what situations or circumstances could you demonstrate grace, perhaps more than what you do presently?  Where in your life could this be most helpful – family, friends, work? I find that when I think of the word grace, I slow down, think more clearly about others’ feelings, and find a better way to deal with the situation at hand.  What about you?



  1. That photo say such a lot. They all look so happy. And to see a young man helping an old man like that, makes you feel good. Thanks for sharing and greetings from Thailand. K

    • Yes, it’s really nice to see others helping – thanks for stopping by, and greetings from Colorado!

  2. We shove strive for grace in every interaction and all we do.

  4. As a Catholic I rely on a different definition of grace. Using the definition you provided, there is never a wrong to show grace. Everyone needs it and not enough people use it.

    I also have post on grace you should check out. http://inspiremylife.wordpress.com/2012/08/17/purpose-of-grace/.

    Great post! We need reminders to be kind to one another.

    • Hi Jade – as a fellow Catholic and follower of Jesus I agree, there are different definitions for grace. In the context I used, it is always appropriate to extend to others. In the context you use, it is necessary for us to receive. 🙂 Thanks for sharing your blog!
