Being Compassionate & Merciful

One of the important ways in which we reflect the character of God in our lives is by being compassionate and merciful as He is.

Whereas, compassion comes upon us automatically, whether or not we extend mercy requires that we decide based upon circumstances, and there are times (e.g. when justice requires punishment) when it is right to withhold mercy even while feeling compassion.

The Scriptures presented are clear that it is God's will that we have an attitude of mercy toward our neighbor, the reason being that God is merciful toward us.

Mitzvah N18
