Mercy is simply justice tempered by that wisdom which grows out of God’s perfection of knowledge and His full recognition of our natural weakness and environmental handicaps as finite will creatures. “Our God is full of compassion, gracious, long-suffering, and plenteous in mercy.” He is “The Most Gracious, The Most Merciful.” Therefore, “whosoever calls upon the Lord shall be saved, for He will abundantly pardon.” “The mercy of our Lord is from everlasting to everlasting.” Yes, “His mercy endures forever.” “I am the Lord who executes loving-kindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth, for in these things I delight.” “I do not afflict willingly nor grieve the children of men, for l am the Father of mercies and the God of all comfort.”
Our Father is inherently kind, naturally compassionate, and everlastingly merciful. And never is it necessary that any influence be brought to bear upon our Father to call forth His loving-kindness. Our need is wholly sufficient to insure the full flow of our Father’s tender mercies and His saving grace. Since our Father knows all about us as His children, it is easy for Him to forgive; just as the better we understand our fellow human beings, the easier it becomes to forgive them, even to love them-including ourselves!
Only the discernment of His infinite wisdom enables our righteous God to minister justice and mercy at the same time, and in any given universe situation. Our Heavenly Father is never tom by conflicting attitudes towards us as His universe children. God is never a victim of attitudinal antagonisms. God’s all knowingness unfailingly directs His free will in the choosing of that universe conduct which perfectly, simultaneously, and equally satisfies the demands of all His divine attributes and the infinite qualities of His eternal nature.
Mercy is the natural and inevitable offspring of goodness and love. The good nature of our loving Father could not possibly withhold the wise ministry of mercy to each member of every group of His many universe children. Eternal justice and divine mercy together constitute what in our experience would be call fairness.
Divine mercy represents a fairness technique of adjustment between the universe levels of perfection and imperfection. Mercy is not a contravention of justice but rather an understanding interpretation of the demands of Supreme Justice as it is fairly applied to the subordinate spiritual beings and to us and all material creatures of the evolving universes of time. Mercy is the justice of our Father wisely and lovingly visited upon the manifold limitless intelligences of the creations of time and space as it is formulated by divine wisdom and determined by the all-knowing mind and the sovereign free will of our Universal Father Himself.
Our Father has already given us an abundance of His mercy credits, an abundance far greater than we shall ever need while here on earth. You need only, by the simple power of you choosing to do so, draw upon all those mercy credits He has already given unto you, and thereby be fully assured of (your) eternal survival — too!
