Mercy

Forgiveness is one of those ideas that’s really hard to talk about and even more difficult to really do.  Because at the heart of it it goes beyond the words you say to, well, the heart.  Jesus shares a story of the Unmerciful Servant in Matthew 18:21-35.  A man is forgiven an unimaginable amount and then immediately goes out to demand money from someone else.  Our hearts are incredibly difficult things to manage but in the end I believe our actions are good signs to others and to ourselves of where we are.  Has our forgiveness led us to actions full of love and mercy of bitterness and vengeance?
