A word about the name of this blog. Solomon said, “Do not let mercy and truth leave you” (Prov 3:3). In other words, “mercy and truth” are vital qualities God’s people should have; therefore, wrap yourself with them like a scarf or necktie, write them on your heart like the most vital principles you could ever know.
The truth we preach must be balanced with mercy, and our mercy towards others must be infused with God’s truth. Where do we get this idea? These two concepts sum up the character of God himself (Exod 34:6). The Hebrew of Exod 34:6 was eventually translated into Greek then it found its way into English. God himself became known as “full of grace/mercy and truth” (John 1:14). Not a bad example to follow.
