Something more.

"Following the way of forgiveness prepares us to go one step further. Something more is asked of us by Jesus: 'Go and learn the meaning of the words, "I desire mercy, not sacrifice." I did not come to call the righteous, but sinners.' (Matt. 9:13)

"This 'something more' is compassion. Once we grasp the depth of God's merciful love for us, he wants us to express that same compassion for others. This is the balm that softens the scars of sinfulness and suffering. As we show mercy to others, so they will extend the blessing to us in turn." -Susan Muto and Adrian Van Kaam, Divine Guidance
