Mercy and Forgiveness

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Mercy and Forgiveness.  Two concepts that work together. Mercy is not getting what we do deserve. When we extend mercy to others we chose to not dole out to them the punishment that they have coming. God shows us mercy in innumerable ways.  May we have the grace to do the same to others.

"Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!"
James 2:12-13

"He has showed you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God."
Micah 6:8

"For I desire mercy, not sacrifice, and acknowledgment of God
rather than burnt offerings."
Hosea 6:6
