  6. BE MERCIFUL Matt. 12:1-8; Hosea 6:4-6 • Mercy is not in conflict with obeying the truth of God, Matt. 12:7, 12 • Obedience is not to be ignored so that “mercy” may be shown (cf. how to be saved)Psa. 89:14 (Deut. 7:9) • Rather, obedience is only accepted when it is also joined with mercy, Matt. 23:23-24 (9:10-13)
