Thanks for this. It reflects how Micah 6:8 looks in practice. Trying to do justly, love mercy and walk humbly requires the kind of attitude you describe. Although I think I'd probably leave a nice yellow note on the car in the fire zone unless it was the kind of car that made it completely obvious the driver could afford the ticket.

Mercy thinks of others first, mercy puts myself in another's shoes before saying anything-seeking first to understand, then to be understood.  <br><br>This is so well written.

Love Cathleen Falsani's definition from her book, Sin Boldly: A Field Guide to Grace.<br><br>"Justice is getting what you deserve. Mercy is not getting what you deserve. And grace is getting what you absolutely don't deserve."<br><br>Mark

Hey maureen, I guess mercy draws the line when it comes to people with fancy cars, eh?
