Which Do You Want? Mercy or Justice
For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.—James 2:13
Strict judgment is what we want for other people, but not for ourselves. What we want for ourselves is mercy. So why the duality? Usually, this is because we have innocently suffered the sin. Therefore we think, "They deserve strict judgment." But remember, we are not free from accusation. We, too, are sinners. We, too, have caused unfair suffering. And we as well deserve justice. So don't opt for strict justice when you want mercy. Instead, show mercy and break the cycle so that your final judgment is not without mercy.
