is goodness and mercy in not defending?

is goodness and mercy in not defending?
is giving goodness and mercy about revealing truth through defense?
how do i give mercy?
what does that look like?
how do i be wise?
how do i gift goodness?
how does that all fit into truth?
it really isn’t about assets and for me it never has been.
i am told it IS about assets by his lawyer but i don’t understand that.
i never have. it is NOT about assets;
it is about life and finding God there in the midst.
it is about goodness and mercy in the midst and in spite of sin.
all else is crap; all else is divisive.

so will it be the laws of goodness and mercy, with God in our midst?
or the laws of man in all their decisiveness?

no choice, is a choice.
