All about grace

My mother’s name is Grace. The grace of god is a fundamental and important concept in all religions. Grace is ‘an undeserved pardon’ in common parlance.

Grace is when we get more than what we deserve to get in very human terms. Grace is also when we get love instead of punishment. Grace is when we receive forgiveness instead of the punishment we rightly deserve in the here and now.

Grace is also when the government pays the ex-judges an ex-gratia payment for their wrongful dismissal and an error of judgment of the past leadership. The government of Malaysia showed grace and let us leave it at that.
