Whoopsies and Wows

“Whoopsies” and “wows.”

I learned more from my “whoopsies” than my “wows.”

“Wows” manifest what we currently can do while “whoopsies” strip away the fabric of perfection and can lead to growth.

Mercy builds upon whoopsies and provides a person what they need while justice imposes on them what they deserves.

Mercy restores while justice imprisons.

“The merciful persons does oneself good …”Proverbs 11: 17 nasb

“It is good to be merciful and generous.” Psalm 112: 5 ncv

Wisdom manifests mercy.

Wise people don’t emphasize other people’s mistakes.

The Bible proclaims in Proverbs 17:9, “Love forgets mistakes; nagging about them parts the best of friends” (TLB).

When we are wise, we don’t rub it in or punish.

We need to have mercy: we give people what they need, not what they deserve.

Justice points down and backwards and buries a person while mercy frees a persons and points up and forward.

Mercy is a life giving choice while judgment is a death dealing choice.
