God Desires Mercy Not Sacrifice

Jack gives his bibleI desired mercy and not sacrifice; and the knowledge of God more than burnt offerings. Hosea 6:6

God shows us mercy and He expects us to show the same to everyone. You cannot say you love God and hate His children. That would be a lie and God don’t tolerate lip-worship. If we continue to be a hearer of the word and not a dower, we deceive ourselves. We need to be more concerned with the well-being of others than offering sacrifices and vain offerings to God. If we show love to others, it shows that we are children of God but if we do not show love, God has not been perfected in us and we need to go back to the drawing board. By our works, we show whether we are godly or not; Love is the key, because God is love. He desires mercy therefore show compassion to others so that the love of God may be seen in you.
