Lent: Mercy - Nehemiah 9:16-17

Nehemiah 9:16-17

16 “But they and our ancestors acted presumptuously and stiffened their necks and did not obey your commandments; 17 they refused to obey, and were not mindful of the wonders that you performed among them; but they stiffened their necks and determined to return to their slavery in Egypt. But you are a God ready to forgive, gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love, and you did not forsake them.

What is mercy?
When have you received mercy?
What does reading "But you are a God ready to forgive, gracious and merciful" do to you?
