Mercy is not getting the bad things we deserve.
Not being punished for doing wrong is an act of mercy. Sometimes criminals ask a judge for mercy; occasionally them receive it. When the police officer gives you a warning, instead of a speeding ticket, it’s an act of mercy.
For all those who follow Jesus, his mercy means we won’t be held accountable for all we’ve done wrong.
Compare and contrast mercy to grace.
