It Takes More than an Act of Mercy

It takes more than an act of mercy to change our hearts.  The Spirit of God has to open our eyes to the mercy and beauty of God in Christ and give us a desire for it.  But there is truth in [Victor] Hugo’s central point [taken from Les Miserables]: mercy begets mercy.
