Bible Passage(s): Psalm 136
Memory Verse: “And he said, I will make all my goodness pass before thee, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before thee; and will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and will shew mercy on whom I will shew mercy.” Exodus 33: 19
I like Macmillan English Dictionary’s definition of mercy. It says “mercy is the act of forgiving someone or not treating them severely, especially someone who have the authority to punish”. When I consider the mercy of God, I see this definition as being inadequate to describe it. The mercy of God towards us is unsearchable and no one can fully understand and imagine the length, depth and breadth of it! Despite man’s continuous disobedience, always going his own way, God still makes His mercy available without measure.
