Who Invented Mercy Anyway....

Spring Break is here and green open spaces are calling, but a thought for anybody who drops by:

The good are innocent so they ask for justice.
The bad are guilty and that's why they ask for mercy.


  • Sometimes it's the good and innocent - who have to beg for mercy,
    While the bad who feel no guilt -insist on extracting "justice".

  • But the righteous ask for mercy for the wicked too. That is what defines them. (i.e. Avraham for Sodom and Amorah)

  • Hmm I don't knwo if I agree, having mercy is a good trait and perhaps It Was Invented(Created) so that we would hav an opportunity to use it.

  • Hashem in his infinite goodness made mercy part of justice. So that he does not have to leave the justice mode to show mercy. Chessed UMishapat...

    You're right, feelings of guilt are necessary for this to work

    Okay, okay, admit to throwing up something b/c hadn't posted in a while and couldn't think of anything and wanted to go play in the sun anyway.
