The definition of grace

Someone in class a couple of weeks ago asked me how I would explain grace to a young child.

I made up an answer on the spot, but it is a tough question -- one that deserves contemplation.

Before the last 5 years or so, the word "grace" was completely confusing to me. I don't want to claim that it's not confusing to me now, but I do feel that the word has taken on new meaning to me. I agree with the idea that it can be a confusing word -- it has been for me.

How would I define it to a child?

The love of God.

How would I define it for an adult?

Jesus love me. This I know.\

Ultimate. Priceless.
