Reading: Romans 11: 1-2a; 29-32 (Click to read text)
Reflection: This passage talks about mercy. Which made me ponder the question, "What is mercy?" It seems to me that mercy is someone not giving me what is really due to me. God does that. Doesn't it say in scripture that God's mercies toward us are new every day?
Maybe mercy is a theme for this week. Yesterday, we read about Joseph and his brothers. He certainly showed mercy to them. In our gospel reading for this week, a woman comes to Jesus and asks for mercy.
How do you show mercy toward others? How does God show mercy toward you? Ponder those questions as you re-read our stories for this Sunday! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
