Mercy

Lk. 7:11-17

Jesus is the embodiment of mercy, steadfastness, loyalty, doing justice–and we are called to do the same. It is interesting to me that we always look for a candidate to “save us”, rather then frankly embodying the that service in our own lives–if we each shared of what we have–no one would want.  Last night I had dinner with a friend who has worked with this individual for years-she blames–his family, society, his mental health on where he is-rather then allowing him to take responsibility for his own actions–we all have forces around us–but ultimately it is how we choose to deal with them that our lives turn out.
