What's the difference between mercy and grace? Mercy is God choosing to not give something we do deserve. Grace is God choosing to give something we do not deserve. Mercy holds back bad. Grace extends good. Mercy is the absence of action. Grace requires action. It is easier to be merciful than it is to be gracious. And yet, we are called to show mercy and give grace to people who do not deserve either because God showed mercy and gave grace to us when had done and could do nothing to earn his love.
