Mercy

Mk. 4:26-34  A young boy once said to me on the street--"You must have done something really bad to do all you do for us, because no one will give themselves away like you do unless you are trying to make up for something." In some ways he was telling a truth--God has shown me such love and mercy I can do no other. It is summed up in this quote:

The practice and exercise of justice is the religious response to having experienced the mercy of God in our lives. If we have ever been forgiven, let off the hook, given another chance, then the only response to that gift is to live justly, to give to others what is demanded in justice because they are human beings and because whenGod could have dealt with us justly, God didn't. - Megan McKenna, Parables -
