When we encounter an offense, most of us want justice. We may try to get justice by talking, arguing, fighting, avoiding etc. Often times, even when we get justice, it is not enough. I like what Abraham Lincoln said about mercy because it is in our hands, or up to us if give mercy or not. Therefore, our healing and the fruits that we will bear are in our hands and are not dependent on if we get justice or not. This is great news and I find it very empowering and full of hope. The next time I feel an offense I am going to try to choose to give mercy and see what comes of it for my life and I encourage you to do the same.
Thanks for reading everyone, keep being awesome!
