Mercy

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 ).
