Ask for mercy and be merciful.

#1 "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." (Luke 6: 36).

#2 "Forgive and you will be forgiven." (Luke 6: 37).

#3 "For the measure with which you measure will in return be measured out to you.” (Luke 6: 38).

Jesus Christ, the face of mercy of Abba Father speaks to us of mercy this Sunday in the Scripture readings:

In Psalm 103, we read of great testimony to the mercy of God:
"The Lord is kind and merciful.
Bless the LORD, O my soul; and all my being, bless his holy name.
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits.

"He pardons all your iniquities, heals all your ills. He redeems your life from destruction, crowns you with kindness and compassion.

"Merciful and gracious is the LORD,
slow to anger and abounding in kindness.
Not according to our sins does he deal with us, nor does he requite us according to our crimes." (Psalm 103:1-2, 3-4, 8, 10, 12-13).

Experience of God's mercy produces trust and confidence in God's mercy.

Remember the ABC of Mercy:
Ask for Mercy.
Be Merciful.
Completely trust Jesus for Mercy.
