As undeserving recipients of God’s mercy, nothing else would be fitting than that we ourselves show

unreserved mercy and compassion for other people. Indeed, we are commanded to be merciful as God
is merciful! The Bible even speaks about compassion and care for animals. Compassion is to share the
pain and suffering of others, and actively working to help them. Our greatest example in this is Jesus
Himself, who took upon Himself human nature, giving His life to open a way of eternal salvation for us.
