Little Acts of Mercy

Sometimes we may think of mercy as a character trait. That certainly is true when we think of God's mercy, in coming from heaven to earth, to reconcile people to himself. Here we are in this dark world, had to see a mercy of Jesus, the Christ, who lived and breathed mercy every day of his life.

We can see the acts of mercy down here, in real time by those who profess to follow him! A few simple acts to consider doing this Christmas:

1. Speak the truth in love. Jesus did!

2. Forgive others and keep forgiving others. Jesus did. Even to the cross.

3. Notice the poor.

4. Give financial help to the needy. Jesus did.

5. Tell people stories that make a point and that they can understand. Jesus did.

6. Stop when you see someone grieving and do something for them. Jesus did.

7. Allow mercy to control you when dealing with disturbed people. Jesus did.

8. Stop thinking of yourself and your desires. Jesus did.

9. Watch out and hit the breaks, so you can take notice of the little children near you.  Jesus did.
