Mercy Givers …
by Andrew Lewis
‘Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.‘
Mercy means to extend compassion or forgiveness towards someone when they could have shown punishment or harm. But it is actually so much more deeper than just the previous sentence …
· Mercy is shown to those who are weaker and poorer.
· Mercy will always look for those who weep and mourn.
· Mercy will always looking to restore broken relationships.
· Mercy will choose to think the best of other people whenever possible.
· Mercy will not expect too much from others.
· Mercy will be gracious to those who are outwardly sinful.
· Mercy will have a care for the souls of all humanity.
Jesus also said …
‘For in the same way you judge others, you will be judged, and with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.’ Matthew 7:2
If you are to experience mercy within your own life, it is important that you become a person who can extend mercy to others. Our world is crying out for more people to be mercy givers; why not start a new trend and show more mercy in your personal life.
DO SOMETHING …
Where can you be a mercy giver today? Is there a broken relationship? Someone who is experiencing consequences from poor choices that needs a hand of mercy? Someone who needs another person to believe the best in them? Look around you today, you probably won’t have to look too far!
PRAY TODAY …
God, we know that your mercy is new every morning, that we have experienced mercy beyond measure because of your love. Bring into our minds those who need mercy around us, may we extend what we have experienced into their lives. Amen.
