  • Beatitude Research Paper

    When we show mercy, the conviction of the Holy Spirit reminds us to show forgiveness, compassion, and love towards the one who has “fallen.” We are not without sin. In the workplace, when a mistake is made it may not be due to an individual purposely making these mistakes. It could possibly be a training issue, misunderstanding, or lack of tools available.
