No Strings Attached

"Thankfully, when it comes to God's Grace, there is not even a hint of exchange. No suggestion of payback or pay-it-forward. There are no strings attached  While only grace can change a heart and produce Law-fulfilling works of mercy, grace is not dependent on a changed heart or Law-fulfilling works of mercy. Grace alone produces the conditions that induce change, but grace is not conditional on change. It is a pure gift - independent of outcomes."
