YOU MUST BE MERCIFUL
“Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy.”(Matthew 5:7, NKJV)
You know, it is always easy to kick somebody when they are already down. We see and hear it so often. When a person who’s sin, fault or error has been revealed publicly, rather than the masses rallying together to help and to heal, the majority begin a verbal lynching. I say often when I hear of such things, “Normally people bury their dead, but we bury our wounded.”
We must never forget what Jesus teaches us about mercy, “Blessed are the merciful, For they shall obtain mercy.” Jesus reminds us that those who show mercy will receive mercy. We must all remember that we all have our weaknesses, faults, failures and frailties. Not one of us can afford to kick, laugh at, belittle or beat up on anyone whose weakness has been revealed.
1. Mercy is when you don’t get what you really deserve.
2. Have you ever needed and received mercy from anyone?
3. Are you the type of person who attempts to judge and condemn others or are you the one who sticks up for and aids others when they are down?
Let us endeavor to show mercy to someone who is in need of mercy. Never forget, if you want to receive mercy in your time of need, YOU MUST BE MERCIFUL.
