Mercy is one of the most beautiful attributes of our Lord and God. Think of Jesus’ showing mercy to the Samaritan woman, to lepers (even those who would not return to thank Him), to the outcast, starving, and poor. In our humanness, we often cry for justice, but where would we be without God’s mercy? The proof of our having truly understood and received His mercy comes when we ourselves are shaped into people of mercy. Have you experienced His mercy?
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. –Matthew 5:7
