Matthew 9:16No one sews a piece of unshrunk cloth on an old cloak, for the patch pulls away from the cloak, and a worse tear is made.
Every now and then I get reminded to throw out an old shirt whose cuffs or collar has become frayed or stained.
What about old ideas? Ideas and modes of thinking that no longer fit with current thinking?
Jesus challenges us to accept and to offer mercy instead of sacrifice. Meeting us not in our righteousness, but in our sins.
How has the idea of mercy torn at the fabric of your life?
