MERCY: HOW IT HELPS EVIL-DOERS (Luke 13:1-9)

How do you feel when someone who’s been hurtful, cruel, or morally corrupt gets hit with a hardship that makes them suffer? Our natural tendency is to rejoice because justice has finally been meted out. Jesus addresses this in Luke 13:1-9. He wants us to understand that we cannot truthfully say that someone is a “greater sinner”, even if that person is doing more damage than anyone else, is more unChristian than we are, or is blatantly an evil-doer. Every person has been created in the image of God, even the worst ones. No person is an evil person. Evil-doers are children of God living in ignorance of their true identity. We should feel sorry for them — this is the gift of mercy. We should mourn with Jesus for the tragedy that continues within their souls — this is the most precious gift of mercy.
