Justice, Mercy, and Grace

An icebreaker to illustrate these three common biblical terms

It's been said that justice is getting what you deserve, mercy is not getting what you deserve, and grace is getting what you don't deserve.

Tell about a time you experienced justice, mercy, or grace. What happened? What did you "deserve"? What did you get? How did that impact you?
