"You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious, Longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth."
Our God is full of mercy and compassion for us. We are only human and make mistakes all the time. If God is so understanding toward you and me, what stops us from showing the same mercy and compassion toward our brothers and sisters in Christ? Find out what God says about this in His Word by downloading the scriptures prayer guide below:
The perfect example of these come from God our Father and Jesus Christ, the Son of God. When Jesus dwelt among us on earth, He showed mercy and compassion to sinful individuals like: the woman at the well, the lame man, the blind man from birth, and countless others in the Bible. He didn't leave them in their sinful lives, but He healed them out of love and told them to sin no more. How amazing is that? He still does this today! God loves us so much that He understands we're not perfect, yet He answers our prayers and brings us into His kingdom.
Now, let's break this down. You can't have mercy without compassion. Mercy is the act of kindness toward another individual through compassion (or sympathetic pity). Mercy is a choice and compassion is the understanding of why that choice was made. Does it make sense? Learn more about this through scripture by clicking on the oval opt-in box below:
