Mercy: Compassion and forgiveness toward someone who doesn’t deserve it. Choosing to not punish someone who has done wrong. Expressed in tangible ways. The attribute of God clearly shown in the death and resurrection of Christ. As He has been merciful toward us, He expects us to be merciful toward others (we can do this only by the power of the Holy Spirit).
