Advent, day 18 “mercy”

The problem with mercy is that it’s not justice. Often the things that we do that are merciful feel like we’re just putting a band-aid on a situation. The thing is, if you’re bleeding, band-aids are awesome!

  1. But God gave us the ultimate Mercy for our sin… Why are you making a parallel with Justice?

    This is my first time reading your site, so I have NO context.

    1. I would argue that what God gives us is beyond mercy, it is grace. I’m speaking more in the context of the mercy that we offer to others, hence the reference to justice.
