Mercy isn't a church program.
Mercy sees need and moves toward need.
In Matthew 5:7, Jesus said, "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy." The blessing God gives is for the one who is merciful.
So, yes, do mercy, but more, be the kind of person who is merciful. That means you're merciful even when you don't work the soup kitchen this quarter.
BE is harder than DO.
And those who ARE must DO.
How do you become a merciful person? Mercy comes from mercy. Divine mercy extended to a broken person (Matt 5:3-4) makes a merciful person.
