What is this "thing" called mercy? In this sermon, Pastor Wayne unpacks some principles surrounding it, principles drawn from the story of the Good Samaritan recorded in Luke 10:25-37.

One of these principles is that Mercy always picks others up. Mercy doesn’t mind seeing others get ahead in life. Mercy doesn’t mind helping another into their place of wholeness, even if it means minimal or no return on the “investment”. Even if it means we won’t see the reward this side of heaven.
I don’t know about you, dear friend, but I am glad, O so glad, that Jesus didn’t expect a return when he invested his life. When he laid down His life willingly on a cruel cross; that He didn’t wait until we were more “deserving” of His sacrifice. “ But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” (Romans 5:8).
God bless you as you listen.
