When I first read the topic, I realized how much I do not know about mercy. I have heard plenty of songs about Mercy, “You got me begging you for mercy.” Which made me think of help. I thought about the mercy of Christ, which I can’t even begin to understand. I need it so much and yet, it is hard to understand how much I need it when I don’t really understand the word to begin with! So, I thought I will write down my thoughts on what mercy actually means.
1) Mercy means help. Please on a bad day, help me! Please on a grumpy day, give me a pass! Please on a downright feel bad for myself, nothing can go right, not enough money, time or patience, forget my bad attitude.
2) Mercy means to intercede. I am a religious person. The funny thing is, in high school, I didn’t think of myself as a religious person, but I was! Without even realized I was, I was! It had become so ingrained in my life, that it was part of me and felt very natural. I have asked my Heavenly Father to intercede on my behalf so many times. I am used to His help. I am used to begging and pleading after a rough day for a try over the next day. I am used to mercy. I am used to the thought that Jesus will be my intercesory? for all my shortcomings. I am used to His love in my life.
Mercy is a subject that I need to study more because I usually could write forever on many subjects, but on this one, I have a hard time. Maybe it is hard to put such a grand characteristic into words. Maybe it is something that just can’t be put into words.
