Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Matthew 5:7
Jesus taught His disciples the basic truths of life. He was telling them how a child of God should be, the blessings that would accompany those who follow His instructions.
Do you know that one reaps what one sows? Yes, it is very true, if we are merciful towards others, we will be shown mercy. If we don’t hesitate to show mercy, God will make people be merciful to us.
There are times when we come across people who long to be shown mercy, those are the times we need to be sensitive to the voice of God. God who is watching from above, sees us doing what He would have done, had He been on this earth is well pleased and would gladly show us His immense mercy. Such a great privilege to be under the mercy of God!
Dear Lord Jesus, thank You for reminding me that in order to obtain mercy from You, I need to show mercy to others. Help me Lord, that I would be able to reflect Your image through my life on this earth. In Jesus name. Amen.
