If I find it, I will resurrect the thread, otherwise be on the lookout for a new thread on the topic. I am a bit busy so it may take a while though.

I admire greatly when people choose to help another worker to pay off his debts, and set on the path of acquiring tools & capital for his own purposes. I see you are right about patronage being a precedent, but in and of itself not constituting this high ideal of what the authors call mercy. But it really helps when you can see that a person really wants to build wealth. A person must learn to ask for good things, to ask for supervision when necessary. However, even in realising the opportunities that one already has, I know and remember how others have been merciful to me.

It occurs when a human individual himself has the opportunity to be merciful, through his encounters with other individuals, and this experience of grace can be felt while the human mind is in the mode of work/prayer.
