BE MERCIFUL


Luke 6:36


"Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." NIV

"Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful." KJV


Just exactly what is being merciful? It is defined as being compassionate and lenient in our attitude and treatment toward anyone who offends us. How merciful is our Heavenly Father? His mercy never ceases. He is rich in mercy. He accepted the sacrifice of His Son, Jesus Christ as complete payment for us, offenders against Him. Jesus commanded us to be merciful. If we have given our hearts to Him, we will have all the grace we need to show mercy to those who offend us. We have no excuse for not being merciful.


Heavenly Father, we ask you to forgive us for those times we have not shown mercy. Help us to remember that You will show mercy to us as we show mercy to others. Give us the right attitude and compassion for those who offend us. In Jesus' name. Amen.

Amen. Our Father is so merciful, that one can only affirm He is God, because his mercy goes beyond what we can imagine. We need to be more merciful with those who have hurt us in any way if we call ourselves sons of our Holy Father.

Have a great day :)
