Mercy transforms hearts and changes lives.

The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” He heard this and said, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. Go and learn the meaning of the words, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.”
Jesus was always hanging out with the “wrong” crowd.
He was often sharing meals with so-called “sinners.”
He seemed to have harsh words for only one group…the Pharisees…the religious leaders who were constantly trying to enforce the letter of the law. The Pharisees, of course, were sinners as well…but they acted as if they were not.
No one is perfect.
Everyone misses the mark on occasion and sometimes on many occasions. Jesus knew that.
God made us imperfect so that we could experience what unconditional love is. (Think about it. Why would God make us imperfect and then punish us for being imperfect? That makes no sense!)
Jesus demonstrated for us that God is a God of mercy who wants nothing more than to be with us in our struggles and short-comings.
For when we experience God’s unmerited love, forgiveness, compassion and mercy…our hearts are transformed. Then we can’t help but want to pass that same unconditional love and mercy on to others.
Are you aware that God loves you eternally just as you are?
