    Mercy quotes by:    

God tolerates even our stammering, and pardons our ignorance whenever something inadvertently escapes us - as, indeed, without this mercy there would be no freedom to pray.

    Author: John Calvin

If we have no zeal for the glory of God our mercy must be superficial, man-centered human improvement with no eternal significance. And if our zeal for the glory of God is not a reveling in his mercy, than our so-called zeal, in spite of all its protests, is our of touch with God and hypocritical.

    Author: John Piper

The Gospel is good news of mercy to the undeserving. The symbol of the religion of Jesus is the cross, not the scales.

    Author: John Stott

Scoff not at the natural defects of any which are not in their power to amend. It is cruel to beat a cripple with his own crutches!

    Author: Thomas Fuller

As every mercy is a drop obtained from the ocean of God's goodness, so every affliction is a drachm weighed out in the wisdom of God's providence.

    Author: James H. Aughey

The most generous and merciful in judgment upon the faults of others, are always the most free from faults themselves.

    Author: James H. Aughey

He that hath deserved hanging may be glad to escape with a whipping.

    Author: Thomas Brooks

Nothing humbles and breaks the heart of a sinner like mercy and love. Souls that converse much with sin and wrath, may be much terrified; but souls that converse much with grace and mercy, will be much humbled.

    Author: Thomas Brooks

To sin because mercy abounds is the devil's logic; he that sins because of God's mercy, shall have judgment without mercy. Mercy is not for them that sin and fear not, but for them that fear and sin not.

    Author: Thomas Watson

The very contradictions in my life are in some ways signs of God's mercy to me.

    Author: Thomas Merton

There is not a flower that opens, not a seed that falls into the ground, and not an ear of wheat that nods on the end of its stalk in the wind that does not preach and proclaim the greatness and the mercy of God to the whole world.

    Author: Thomas Merton

Our knowledge of God is paradoxically not of him as the object of our scrutiny, but of ourselves as utterly dependent on his saving and merciful knowledge of us. It is in proportion, as we are known to him that we find our real being and identity in Christ. We know him in and through ourselves in so far as his truth is the source of our being and his merciful love is the very heart of our life and existence.
