We serve a merciful God. I explained it to the kids that God gives us things we do not deserve, as in forgiveness. We talked about how we are called to forgive too, just as God forgives us. I am thankful that God shows us mercy, I am in need of that and challenged to do the same to others. Our verses were Psalm 86:15
15 But you, Lord, are a compassionate and gracious God,
slow to anger, abounding in love and faithfulness.
Also Luke 6:36
36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.
