God And Mercy

In our humanness, we most often think of mercy as something granted to us. Or, if we are particularly good, something we grant to others.

But ever wonder what mercy might look like from God’s perspective? In his book The Mercy Prayer, Robert Gelinas gives us a glimpse:

“To say that God is gracious means that he has stooped down low and offered kindness to someone beneath him. Because God is the highest being in the universe, every form of interaction is for him a gracious act. When he receives the worship of the angels or listens to our prayers, he lowers himself; there is nothing equal to or higher than him. If in his mercy God did not come down to us, we could never know him. All knowledge we have about our Creator is a result of his gracious stooping to our level in word and in flesh.” The Mercy Prayer, Robert Gelinas

Hold that thought. Go forth
