Spiritual Gift - Mercy
It is like if a police officer pulled someone over and only gives them a warning because the person seemed very upset. It might be like if a person was swimming in a no swimming area and got stuck. Instead of just saying that they deserved it, you would go get help.
God puts it on your heart to take care of people in need. These may be people who are sick or poor. While someone may say that someone really deserves to be punished, your first thought is to give them a second chance. You are very forgiving.
Example of Mercy:
In Matthew 18:21-35, Jesus tells a story of a man (We will call him Dude) who owed a bunch of money to a king and couldn't pay it back. Dude begged the king to not sell him and his family and all that he owed. The king had mercy on Dude and said that he didn't owe anything and he let him go.
Opposite of Mercy:
Dude went to someone who owed Dude money and said he had to repay it back now. The man begged him, but Dude threw him in prison.
Dude got in big trouble by the King because he did not show mercy.
