Selective Mercy

mercy

Selective mercy is not God’s mercy. Limited goodness is not God’s goodness. Loving only some is not God’s love. We can be merciful, good, and loving to all of God’s people and creatures without being foolish, unsafe, or gullible. Wise as serpents and gentle as doves.

If we are only merciful, good, and loving toward some it is not really mercy, goodness, or love – it is self-interest, favoritism, and fear. Perfect love casts out all fear. For skeptics and believers alike; conscience, reason and the heart speak this truth. Believers even have it in writing. God’s mercy, goodness, and love extend to everything. Are we not called to do the same?
