Five Minute Friday- Mercy

I'm joining Lisa-Jo Baker and a bunch of other profound bloggers for:
  Five Minute Friday 
Today's topic: Mercy

The first thing that came to mind when I read the word mercy was the lyrics to Multiply Your Love:
Let us see Your kingdom come
To the poor and broken ones
Let us see a mighty flood
Of justice and mercy, O Jesus
Let love be multiplied
Let love be multiplied
~Andy Park

... because if I really think about it... Mercy requires a tremendous amount of love...  Mercy requires that we set aside judgement... that we sacrifice somehow... rarely is it convenient... but it is required for a fulfilling life.

... and when we pour mercy on to others... we invite mercy to be bestowed upon us... and that hopefully becomes a cup that runneth over.



  1. Sarah, such truth is spoken here. Lovely words!!

  2. Sarah, love that line where you said "when we pour mercy on to others, we invite mercy to be bestowed upon us. so beautiful.
