Weylin Lee reflects on how we might be blocking the flow of mercy in our lives and what barriers we might have built that limit the flow [Matthew 15:10-28].
- What expectations and hidden biases do we have that limit our flow of mercy?
- How might we practice mercy as a mutual flow that feeds the cycle of giving and receiving?
- Journal Our Expectations of Others. Reflect on people we have difficulty extending mercy to. List out what expectations we’ve put on them. Examine which expectations are actually limiting your ability to practice mercy.
- Seeking Understanding. Life experiences or relational trauma we haven’t been through. Cultural backgrounds and upbringing we’re not familiar with. Being a different gender or ethnicity in the workplace.
