James straightened us up when he said,
“So speak and so do as those who will be judged by the law of liberty. For judgment is without mercy to the one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment” (James 2:12–13).
Remember as you go through life that one day you must stand before God, but that does not have to frighten us, although it should frighten us out of sinful speaking and doing, but James let us know that while the unmerciful shall not receive mercy in the Judgment, yet, the merciful shall receive mercy, and in that way mercy triumphs over judgment.
