Strength of any sort is a kind of wealth. Mercy is a sign of that wealth. Even one who has only a little strength can afford at least some form and measure of mercy.
Those who are without mercy are either so weak or afraid as to be unable to afford it or so hard hearted, twisted, and lacking in dignity that the level of their strength is irrelevant. Therefore, a failure to show mercy is a demonstration not of power and glory but of the lack of these things, there being no power in the failing and no glory in the flaw.
Those who value generosity, compassion, and humility love mercy. Those with true and noble strength will live by it. In sharing mercy, wealth is expanded for all.
