Act 39: Mercy
Mercy is being let off the hook. Mercy is when you’re not given what you deserve. Mercy triumphs over judgment. Today, we’re taking others off the hook. We’re offering mercy to people who are especially difficult, hard to remember fondly, or who just grind us down. The first person to extend that mercy to might be yourself.
Choose how you’ll complete today’s act:
One option today:
We don’t get to choose when and where we’re called to show mercy – in the mundane or the extraordinary. Today, whether you’re cut off in traffic, or insulted, or taken for granted, find your mercy. Is there a situation past or present where you’re struggling to let mercy triumph over judgment? Commit it to God and ask him to help you overcome it.
“Speak and act as those who are going to be judged by the law that gives freedom, because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”
(James 2:12–13 NIV)
