Let us be inclined to show mercy and all other blessings will follow!

Therefore, we also need to show much mercy. Much and little aren’t measured by the quantity of things given, but by the giver’s means. But if you don’t have anything but a compassionate soul, this will prepare a reward for you. So then, let us be inclined to show mercy and all other blessings will follow. For those that have a spirit of love and mercy will give money away if they have it. If they see anyone in distress, they will weep. If they encounter people who have been wronged, they will stand up for them. If they see others treated maliciously, they will reach out their hand to them. For those who have a treasure house of blessings, a loving and merciful soul will make it overflow to meet all of their neighbors needs – St. John Chrysostom

As we focus on Stewardship. let us practice mercy in our relationships with others.
