Have you ever needed someone to stop for you? Has there ever been a time in your life when you needed someone to be merciful toward you? God calls us to be the type of people who give mercy to others. So, what is “Mercy”? Mercy is the sensitivity to see a need, and to act to meet it. Why can we be merciful?
Have you even wanted to do the right thing, but hesitated, and never got the chance again? What will we do with the time we are given? What we do in this life will echo in eternity. God opposes the proud, but gives grace to the humble.
Do we see our situations in life as the result of our own doing? When we pray, do we look to God or do we focus on ourselves? This week we encounter two characters, who teach us about being justified and right with God.
