There is no mercy (with thanks to A.K.)

If you had known what these words mean, ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice,’ you would not have condemned the innocent (Matthew 12:7; NIV). 

There is no mercy
In our minds
When we condemn
The meek.

There is no justice
In our hearts
When we abuse
The weak.

There is no pity
In our souls
When we exploit
The poor. 

Stir our spirits
To repent,
Till love becomes
Our law.


Whoever loves others has fulfilled the law
(Romans 13:8; NIV).

  • A wonderful devotion Ruth. How much we need the love of God, as our daily sustenance. In His immeasurable grace there is always more than enough, that we may bless others in what He gives us. God bless you and yours this weekend my sister.
