Love Mercy


We are called to not only be merciful, but to love mercy (Micah 6:8). To love it! When you love something you sacrifice for it, you protect it, and you put it before yourself.

Mercy (not getting what you deserve) is like that for a Christian and here’s why: God has shown us such immense mercy (hesed), the obvious response is to show mercy to others (Matt. 18:33).

Jesus and merciful are synonymous. Christian and merciful should be likewise.

Mercy, although not easy, is a requirement. The LORD expects it of His children.

Are we showing it?
