Mercy

Resource Toolbox
Additional Links
Compassion for the miserable. Its object is misery. By the atoning sacrifice of Christ a way is open for the exercise of mercy towards the sons of men, in harmony with the demands of truth and righteousness (Genesis 19:19 ; Exodus 20:6 ; 34:6,7 ; Psalm 85:10 ; 86:15,16 ). In Christ mercy and truth meet together. Mercy is also a Christian grace (Matthew 5:7 ; 18:33-35 ).
