Luke 15:10 …But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion for him; he ran to his son, threw his arms around him and kissed him
Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy!
Mercy may seem, to the outside observer, the smallest of gifts; but to the one who receives it Mercy is:
A pint of blood from someone we never met
A handful of tissues when the tears are streaming down your face
An silent embrace when our world is falling apart
The light left on and the door unlocked when we least deserve being accepted back home
