What Is Asked Of Us

Do not be daunted by the enormity of the world’s grief.
Do justly, now.
Love mercy, now.
Walk humbly, now.
You are not obligated to complete the work,
but neither are you free to abandon it.
~ The Talmud

Mercy

“There comes a time when your eyes are opened. And we come to realize that mercy is infinite. We need only await it with confidence and receive it with gratitude. Mercy imposes no conditions. And lo! Everything we have chosen has been granted to us. And everything we rejected has also been granted.

“Yes, we even get back what we rejected. For mercy and truth are met together. And righteousness and bliss shall kiss one another.”
~ Babette’s Feast
