let others think with mercy toward me, and may i think with mercy toward them
How often I'm reminded of God's mercy toward me, as over and over I have made mistakes and have been allowed to begin again. Surely God's mercy is woven into the nature of the universe.
May I show mercy to others as God has shown mercy toward me. May I not withhold my gracious allowance for the mistakes of the mortal self. Rather, may others feel from me the charity and compassion of one who understands.
May I not withhold from others
The mercy You have shown me.
May I not remind others of their mistakes,
But rather a space
Where people feel free to begin again.
