100 PERCENT

“Which of these three, in your opinion, was neighbour to the robbers’ victim?... The one who treated him with mercy.” – Luke 10:36-37

In organizing events, I have acquired a deeper understanding of mercy.
By many estimates, I am considered an efficient worker. To me, it’s just something I have to do within a deadline I have to meet. So you can imagine my impatience with a lackadaisical staff.
But when I look at other people, I see that most of them work really hard to do what I ask. So I realized that my 100 percent is not necessarily another person’s 100 percent.
Instead of getting frustrated, I am learning to accept people’s limitations. If I see that someone can take so much more, then I push. If not, I do the work myself or hand it over to someone who can do it.
Mercy, I have realized, comes even before there is a need to forgive. It is accepting a person’s capacity and weakness, and maximizing to get the best out of the person.
I still have a long way to go to learn this lesson but I pray that I will never let up on this road. For I, too, need mercy.
May He, who knows everything, have mercy on us.Joy Sosoban (jsosoban@gmail.com)

REFLECTION:
“The quality of mercy is not strained; it droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven upon the place beneath. It is twice blessed — it blesseth him that gives, and him that takes.” (William Shakespeare)

Help me to be merciful, Lord. Have mercy on me, too, a sinner.
