“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.” Matthew 5:7 (ESV)
As you are merciful toward others, so will God in his judgement be merciful toward you. We all want God’s grace, not the wrath we deserve, but when we realize our own sinfulness it’s easier to be merciful toward others. When we are grateful for Calvary and appreciate the price Christ paid, it’s easier to be merciful with others.
Let’s pray today to have compassion and patience with others for the sake of Christ.
