River of mercy

             Love your enemies
            and you will be children of the Most High,
            who is kind to the ungrateful and the wicked.
            Be merciful, just as God is merciful.
                           —Luke 6.35-36


God is Love, not payback.

The Merciful One
does not measure your kindness,
only your need for kindness.

The more sinful you are,
the more mercy you lack.
God completes you.

God is merciful.
God is mercy itself,
infinite, never withheld.

Let this be your mantra:
God is kind to the wicked.
God is kind to the wicked.
God is kind to the wicked.

Be a river of mercy
as your spring is mercy.
