S - Go and learn what this means, "I desire mercy, and not sacrifice." For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners." (Matthew 9:13 ESV)
O - Jesus was rebuking the Pharisees by asking them what it means that he desires mercy not sacrifice. Then he told them that he came for the sinners not the righteous. Their pride got in the way of truly understanding what Jesus was asking them.
A - I am saved and part of God's family only because of his mercies towards me. Nothing I can do could ever restore what I have broken. Only by the blood of Jesus I can now approach God with confidence.
P - Father, oh how blessed I am. Thank you for your mercies.
