Romans 12:8 says, if you have a gift for showing kindness to others, do it gladly. Some versions say mercy, which is kindness and compassion. Everyone should be kind, compassionate and merciful. Ephesians 4:32 says, Be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving each other, just as in Christ God forgave you. You might have the gift of mercy if you are drawn to people who need help, are suffering, or in a difficult situation. If people look for you when they need someone to talk to, if you enjoy volunteering and helping in practical ways, you may have the gift of mercy or kindness. Regardless of whether you have the gift or not, you should be kind to everyone, all of the time.
