In this day and age, mercy, or compassion is truly a quality which is sorely lacking in many of our lives. When true Divine Love does not rule in our hearts, then being merciful towards others is indeed hard to manifest; and as Jesus said regarding the Endtime: "And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." Matthew 24:12, KJV The Lord emphasized the importance of mercy in the Parable of the Good Samaritan when He said in part: "Which now of these three, thinkest thou, was neighbour unto him that fell among the thieves? And he said, He that shewed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise." Luke 10:36,37, KJV Only God's love burning in our hearts, through the in-dwelling of the Spirit of Jesus Christ, can give us the attitude of mercy, compassion and forgiveness that we all need. As Jesus said: "But if ye forgive not men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses." Matthew 6:15, KJV And as Paul also wrote: "And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God for Christ's sake hath forgiven you." Ephesians 4:32, KJV Thank the Lord that His compassion never fails, for as Jeremiah was inspired to write: "It is of the LORD'S mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness." Lamentations 3:22-23, KJV For more on this topic, please read the WordWeaver's in-depth article 'Love, Mercy, Forgiveness And Chastisement'.
