I heard a very simple but profound definition of mercy this week. Not making an issue over something you have the “right” to make an issue over.
To me, that is just crystal clear, but not that easy to do. I immediately made a commitment to try to be a merciful person, and was almost immediately given the opportunity to practice it.
Funny how that works! My mercy muscles are sadly pretty weak, but with the Lords’ help, they’ll get stronger
