Want Mercy? Give It. Won't Give it? Won't get it! Got it?
God is rich in mercy towards us and saves us by His grace and mercy. Someone has said that grace gives us what we don't deserve and mercy holds back what we do deserve. Grace gives Heaven. Mercy keeps us out of Hell. God wants us to show mercy especially when we don't think someone deserves it. That's where we were once with God. We didn't deserve His mercy but He gave it anyway. Now it's our turn to show mercy to those who deserve judgment. But, as our verse says, "mercy triumphs over judgment." When you think its time to "get even" with someone, throw mercy at them instead of stones. Watch the result!
