Mercy Bible Study: Session 4 Reflection

Did you make it through all the readings for this session. There were a lot, right?! I many of the readings but I wasn’t able to finish them all. It was okay because, as you may have noticed, it was easy to get the gist of the themes.

I have to be honest and admit that this session was a little dry and difficult to get through. However, my biggest takeaway from this session was the reminder of God’s faithfulness. Father Pacwa writes:

“In fact, the reason he shows the people mercy is because he remains faithful to the covenantal relationship, even when they become unfaithful” (75).

No matter what we have done or do, God remains faithful. So often, we turn away from God and sin. We live as if He doesn’t exist or doesn’t matter. Still, His love is constant and continual. He gently tries to get our attention and showers us with graces but they often go unrecognized.

Thankfully, He is always ready to take us back the second we turn to Him. This is a sign of His great mercy. There may be consequences for our actions but God does not punish or turn away from us. He accepts and loves us just as we are, with all our faults and foibles. God remains steadfast and faithful and we can put our trust in that!

What is your biggest takeaway from the lesson? Did you find it dry and difficult to work through? Why or why not?
