God’s mercy – is there a limit to it?

Does God’s mercy ever run out? Is God merciful no matter what we’ve done or how many times we’ve sinned? We all need mercy, but how much mercy does God really have?

Jesus said, “Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you. If someone slaps...
