Along the yellow brick road, the Tin Man was able to show off his tenderheartedness to the characters and the other creatures along the way. He cared about the wildlife they came across in the forest, making sure not to step on any bugs and advising the other characters to protect the deer. In the same way, we are called to be merciful with each other. We are told to love God and love others, including our enemies.
Questions for further thought:
1. Who has shown you mercy in the past?
2. Who do you need to show mercy to right now?
Challenge: Showing grace can be tough. All of us are broken and imperfect. We have people in our lives that hurt us and give us deep wounds. Take time to pray for the people that have hurt you. Ask God to heal the wounds, so that you can reconcile with them.
