Holding Back
facets of mercy
Facets of Mercy
  • Mercy can be viewed as holding back the punishment that someone rightly incurs.
  • Mercy can be viewed as sympathizing with others, the catalyst for compassion.
  • Mercy can be viewed as forgiving the trespasses of others against us.
  • Mercy can be viewed as imitating God who is all merciful, and from whom we learn mercy.
reciprocal principle
Reciprocal Principle
  • Mercy was given to us by God, and we are under a mandate to give mercy to others.
  • When we give mercy, it returns to us through others or through God. Mercy is rewarded with mercy!
  • We learn to give mercy even in the face of unfaithfulness like God did with Israel and His covenant.

  • Mercy is a precious commodity that a world without forgiveness, compassion and godliness lacks and desires.
  • Mercy is a taught attitude and action, not naturally occurring in humanity.
  • We must be the one to act on mercy, not think someone else will do it.
  • Mercy will be given in short bursts now, and by our God in the end of time fully!
