Mercy Triumphs Over Judgement
Salted with fire, yet you never relented,
You fell, you wept and truly repented.
I heard your cry, I already knew the end,
My hand of mercy to you I extend.
I know your weakness, I see your heart,
Don’t forget — I fashioned every part.
The righteous fall but always arise,
They trample the enemy’s incessant lies.
Wallow not in self-pity for it is not from me,
My shed blood washes over your iniquity.
A repentant heart is what I embrace,
In this you learn of my abounding grace.
Look deeply for herein lies a key,
A part of my character I want you to see.
If I pointed the finger and cast a stone,
With that tone will my love be known?
“For a righteous man may fall seven times and rise again, but the wicked shall fall by calamity,” Proverbs 24:16 (NKJV).
“If we claim to be without sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness,” 1 John 1:8-9 (NIV).
“because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment,” James 2:13 (NIV).
“For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through him, “ John 3:17 (NIV).
