Mercy Me4/7/2021Wednesday

Sociologists have been calling out for a change in our penal system for years. I remember studying it in the late 1970’s. Currently, neuroscience has been studying images of the brain and finding that good hugs help heal trauma, including PTSD, that shame shuts the brain down, that thinking positive does actually make life better than expecting the worst.

I would like to see more brain study regarding mercy and forgiveness.

From personal experience, I know that forgiving is powerful and releases being held by bitterness.

I would also like to see restorative justice taught in the earliest ages. As a parent, I know how easy it is to slip into blame when parenting becomes overwhelming. I known what it means to need to be forgiven.

Today, I am praying for mercy:
