The Mercy Test
Bishop Daniel notes the importance of mercy in scripture and he offers the self test for any situation. In any given place you find yourself, the mercy you are showing and are willing to show is revealed in how many people in that place you would not be with if you had a choice to avoid them. How many people are getting on your nerves, driving you crazy etc. do you have to extend some mercy to in the given situation. For in many places we find ourselves, we are called to extend mercy and understanding to others and in turn receive it ourselves.
