mercy for all

is that a cross in the clouds or Jesus with arms extended to us all?
you're gonna get what you give
seems I heard that over and over during my growing years
(as if growing ever ceases)
if you want to have a friend, be a friend
do unto others
love your neighbor

some lessons have been harder to learn
forgiveness, grace

can I proclaim judgement on others
while expecting mercy for myself?
dare I shout out for punishment for the sins of another
while clothing myself in the truth of His goodness 
while His mercy washes over me?

He Is mercy.  He Is grace.  He is love.
for the least of us
for all of us
every.single.one.

Such a hard thing for us to remember, but so important. Thank you for this reminder. His grace is for everyone, not just we think are worthy.
