The Mercy Cycle
1. Share an experience that taught you about mercy.
2. Why does God say He wants mercy and not sacrifice? (see Matt. 9:10-13)
3. What things prevent us from taking compassionate action?
4. Can a Christian be consistently merciful and yet be an employer who pays good wages for excellent work, but dismisses irresponsible employees?
5. Why will only merciful people find mercy on the judgment day, if salvation is by grace through faith?
