The word grace or some form of it appears a 185 times in The Bible.
The 1st time grace appears in The Bible is Genesis 68:8 but Noah found grace in the eyes of the Lord. The last time grace appears in The Bible’s revelations 22:21 the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all Amen.
The definition of grace in The Bible is God’s Unmerited favor, His undeserved kindness.
When we gossip we are disgracing others, Jesus is ready to give them grace. We need to also. Lord help us not to Gossip, but to pray and encourage others in their spiritual growth.

John 8:2-9 At dawn he went to the temple again, and all the people were coming to him. He sat down and began to teach them.” Then the scribes and the Pharisees brought a woman caught in adultery, making her stand in the center.” “Teacher,” they said to him, “this woman was caught in the act of committing adultery.” In the law Moses commanded us to stone such women. So what do you say?”” They asked this to trap him, in order that they might have evidence to accuse him. Jesus stooped down and started writing on the ground with his finger.” When they persisted in questioning him, he stood up and said to them, “The one without sin among you should be the first to throw a stone at her.”” Then he stooped down again and continued writing on the ground.” The Lord is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and great in faithful love.” When they heard this, they left one by one, starting with the older men. Only he was left, with the woman in the center. When Jesus stood up, he said to her, “Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you? “No one, Lord,” she answered. “Neither do I condemn you,” said Jesus. “Go, and from now on do not sin anymore.
