Core Virtues for the month of March - Mercy

Mercy is the compassionate treatment of those in distress, especially when it is within one’s power to punish or harm them. Mercy doesn't always involve grand moments or gestures. But it always treats the position of influence, authority or power it acts from gently. Mercy makes room for others. Sometimes mercy means choosing not to complain to the restaurant manager when the service you received was lacking. That is the mercy of kindness. Sometimes mercy means not making it difficult for the person who offended you to apologize. That is the mercy of forgiveness. Sometimes mercy means correcting someone gently and not acting smug or vindictive. That is the mercy of grace. Sometimes mercy means helping a child escape poverty. That is the mercy of compassion. We will all need to show and be shown mercy in our lives. Make room in your heart for someone else. Extend mercy to someone this week.
