Gospel: Luke 6:36-38
"Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." – Luke 6: 36
Mercy does not count what it gives or ask for something in return. And doing good deeds is a part of being merciful but in today's gospel, Jesus invites us to imitate the merciful Father by not judging, criticizing and condemning others.
In this season of lent, may we learn to imitate and extend the mercy of our Father to our brothers and sisters not just by doing good deeds but also by understanding and forgiving those who've wronged us. Amen.
