Mercy is a spirit that motivates you to show compassion to others.
It isn't always easy to be merciful.
Compassion doesn't come naturally for all of us.
Some people may seem undeserving of mercy.
I have given this verse much thought for the past few weeks. I will be honest. I am sometimes part of the "us" crowd I mentioned above. You know...the group where compassion doesn't come naturally.
Some situations just get my compassion all clogged up.
I have had to think about the mercy that the Lord has shown me. He has forgiven me of my sins and sent His son to pay the price for me. I am far from perfect and make mistakes pretty much every time I turn around yet He is faithful and just to forgive me of my sins.
He not only forgives but forgets.
What an example for us of how we need to be merciful and full of compassion towards others!
