Matthew 5:7 (NIV)
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Considering our many imperfections, we would have been destroyed or in more trouble if others decided to pay us back deserving for our behavior, actions or inaction. We probably offend more people in a day than we are offended. Our trespasses against God are countless yet our redemption and salvation are acts of mercy from God through Christ. Fortunately for you, how much mercy you attract, depends on how much mercy you show to others. The devil absolutely hates this deal you have so watch out for his schemes. It’s quite simple. Be merciful!
Dear God, help me overcome my shortcomings so I will learn to love my brethren and show mercy to all persons I encounter and forgive all who trespass against me. In Jesus name I pray.
