The measure of mercy
For the measure with which you measure
will in return be measured out to you.
Thus says our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ in today’s Gospel (Luke 6:36-38)
To be sure, we must be clear about the truth, including about what is right and what is wrong, and we must be prudent when it comes to protection against evil.
But, sinners that we are, we desperately need to be generous in the mercy we show others, so that we ourselves may share in the richness of the mercy of God.
