What does mercy mean to you?
The Merrriam-Webster dictionary defines it this way:
Kind or forgiving treatment of someone who could be treated harshly.
It also offers a second explanation:
Kindness or help given to people who are in a very bad or desperate situation.
Because of sin, we deserve harsh treatment.
Because of God’s love, we are offered kind and forgiving treatment.
Because of sin, we were all in a very bad and desperate situation.
Because of God’s love, we can be redeemed from that situation.
God’s mercy endures forever!
Psalm 136:1 reads,
“Give thanks to the LORD because He is good, because His mercy endures forever.”
