God's Word challenged us to "spend ourselves in behalf of the hungry and satisfy the needs of the oppressed." (Isaiah 58:10).
He is delighted with life-saving medical care for a child in Honduras.
He is delighted with food offered in His name to hungry gypsies.
Why do we do mercy?
Because we know God.
And love God.
And we are commanded to love others
(even more than ourselves).
