What is mercy? Who is mercy?
We throw this name around with insignificant phrases like:
Mercy sakes alive!
But do we even know what the word means?
Mercy is neither sympathy nor empathy.
Mercy means so much more.
Mercy is compassion. Mercy is favor. Mercy is blessing and kindness.
Mercy never stands still. Mercy doesn’t just look.
Mercy is always moving and active.
Mercy gets involved.
Mercy reaches down to lift up.
Mercy forgives. Mercy pardons.
Mercy’s language is love.
Mercy makes the sacrifice.
And…Mercy gave His life for me and you so that we may live a life with Him.
And for that,
Mercy, thank you!
