    Do you think that the word "Grace" is taken out of context?

    Grace at the table....the grace of God....unmerited favor...a grace period....elegance ,and ways of personality seem to differ from...the fruits of the spirit, which I think have been misused to mean something different other than the original meaning which is by "Grace"are we saved..Do you think so.
    The dictionary seem to come up short in explaining it's definition from that of the Bible. Are you on the same page.

    You are right. Grace originally means good will or gratitude. Afterwards, it meant God's favor or help. Then, a virtue of goodness. And only later, a pleasing or agreeable quality.

    Well, it depends on what context you're using it in. Just like there are three definitions for the same sounding word: there, their and they're, a lot of other words have more than one meaning and the origin of the word doesn't define it's many meanings.

    My understanding has been that being within grace is being within goodness.
