Grace seems to be defined in many ways such as elegance or beauty, a pleasing or attractive quality, a manifestation of favor by a superior, & giving goodwill.
If we were to repay someone who did a favor to us or is deserving, that wouldn’t really be grace. It seems to be that it is really a gift in a lot of ways, and especially a gift to someone who didn’t really deserve one to begin with. What does the Bible say?
Here is Scripture on Grace:

John 1:17 – For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.
