Song of Songs 5.1-8.14; 2 Corinthians 9.1-15; Psalm 51.1-19; Proverbs 22.24-25
Here is the most amazing thing about God’s mercy: We do not deserve it, at all, yet because of his unfailing love, he gives it to us anyway.

What helps you realize you get God’s mercy because of him, not because of what you did to deserve it?
