Daily Verse
September 13 – Why Mercy?

“But go and learn what this means: 'I desire mercy and not sacrifice.' For I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners, to repentance." – Matthew 9:13

In light of the great disaster that has befallen our nation during Hurricane Katrina, we can see the need for mercy for the many homeless and downtrodden. Many have indeed gotten to the bottom by choice and others by circumstances beyond their control, but they still need mercy. Prostitutes and drug addicts and a host of other bad elements of our society need mercy most of all. Whatever brought them to the pit, it is only Jesus Christ can pull them out. The self-righteous Pharisees and religious hypocrites that constantly harassed and tested Jesus are the same religious, self-righteous people that point to the poor as our problem, or the Democrats, or the Christian fundamentalists, or the liberals, or whatever. They will look down on the less than holy then they and condemn them rather than giving them the mercy that comes from the Hand of Jesus Christ. Why mercy? Because it alone secures mercy for us when we deserve punishment.
