In Defense of Mercy

By William Carrol

September 4, 2011

August 30, 2011 – Are you avoiding a specific act of mercy toward someone who has caused you pain? There are seasons in our lives when God will send us on a personal mission of mercy to those who have hurt us deeply and have caused pain and heartache in our lives. The question is how will you respond? If you refuse to extend forgiveness God will prepare a place for you so you can get alone with your own thoughts and begin to deal with those who you are holding a grudge against. Don’t let the pain of your experiences define you when you have a merciful God that wants to deliver you. Today, God invites you to lay your head in His bosom so He can communicate His love and mercy for you. As you receive His mercy it will flow through you onto those who have hurt you.
