If we are owed mercy, then it is not mercy at all. In the most basic sense justice is receiving what we are owed.

Conversely, mercy is receiving good when we are not owed it. Alphabetical: act And But do does God good has He humbly is justice justly kindness LORD love man mercy O of require showed the To told walk what with you your OT Prophets: Micah He has shown you O man what (Mc Mic.

Along with justice, Israel was to provide mercy. Both justice and mercy are foundational to God’s character (Psalm ). God expected His people to show love to their fellow man and to be loyal in their love toward Him, just as He had been loyal to them (Micah ; ; ).

Just Mercy is a remarkable amalgam, at once a searing indictment of American criminal justice and a stirring testament to the salvation that fighting for the vulnerable sometimes yields.” —David Cole, The New York Review of Books.

“A searing, moving and infuriating memoirCited by: He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you. To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God. “Just Mercy is every bit as moving as To Kill a Mockingbird, and in some ways more so [It] demonstrates, as powerfully as any book on criminal justice that I’ve ever read, the extent to which brutality, unfairness, and racial bias continue to infect criminal law in the United States/5(5K).
