What would it look like if we chose to live counter to the social norms and we went out of our way to live mercy as Jesus did?
Kingdom values require vulnerability which feels like weakness but actually requires strength and courage.
Sometimes, extending mercy takes practice. On our own, giving mercy is impossible to do. The beauty is we don’t have to do it alone
Our God is a loving and merciful Father. There is no offense too great for Jesus to cover. In his rich mercy, He will always swoop us up and hold us away from the punishment–seeking accuser.
Mercy is not contingent upon our goodness or lack thereof. The Bible says all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God (Romans 3:23).
