Nothing is Sweeter than Mercy

Nothing is sweeter than mercy, when it is improved; nothing fiercer, when it is abused; as nothing is colder than lead when taken out of the mine, and nothing more scalding when it is heated. Nothing is blunter than iron, yet nothing is sharper when it is whetted. “The mercy of the Lord is upon them that fear Him” (Psa. 103:17). Mercy is not for them that sin and fear not, but for them that fear and sin not. God’s mercy is a holy mercy; where it pardons it heals. “A Body of Divinity” pg. 97
