Grace and Wild

Grace and Wild

Grace is defined as courteous goodwill. Meaning, it's not asked for nor deserved, but is freely given. An example of grace is the letting go of a past wrong done to you. Grace is also going beyond your inclinations of trying to get the upper hand or revenge on someone who hurt you.

Grace requires us to look at the recipient with compassion (which is defined as sympathetic pity and concern for the sufferings or misfortunes of others). It is giving to the other person, even when you feel they do not deserve it.

Common Christian teaching is that grace is unmerited mercy (favor) that God gave to humanity by sending his Son, Jesus Christ, to die on a cross, thus securing man's eternal salvation from sin.

But what is Grace and Wild? Is it being wild about grace? Putting all your efforts into being graceful to everyone that you meet? Or is it just a concept? An idea? A thought, maybe?

Someone that is wild is not tamed or domesticated. If a person is wild, he or she might be unrestrained, crazy, or even enthusiastic — like someone who's wild about cabaret music. Wildness can also allude to a wild primitive state untouched by civilization

Maybe thats the type of grace that we need - an uncontrolled grace. What do you think? Answers on a postcard...
