Guide, remember.. fear not


I sit here feeling battered and flummoxed.
I inadvertently opened a hot button on facebook.

Name calling.
Hard comments.

Parenting Series: Mercy

 Do you know what mercy is?

Mercy is "tenderheartedness and compassion toward someone in need" (Tripp p. 195) 

Mercy is "compassion or forgiveness shown toward someone whom it is within one's power to punish or harm."  (google)

When I was growing up I was taught that mercy was "unmerited favour". 

Mr. Tripp asks us to remember what it is, and to also remember, how much we need mercy in our own lives. Can you remember how important mercy is to you in your own walk with the Lord.

Now .. holding that in your mind.  Think about your children.
