"Have Mercy"
Lamentations 3:22,23; Luke 15:11-31

Some people equate mercy as saying yes to everything whether it is right or wrong. Others see mercy as an abandonment of God’s standards and truth. The truth is that mercy finds its origins in God Himself and it is one of the key attributes He calls us to model if we are followers of Christ.
