James 2:13
". . .judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment." NIV
"For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment." KJV
What is mercy? It is showing compassion on someone who would otherwise deserve punishment of some kind. How many of us have deserved negative consequences for something we have done, but we were pardoned from punishment and given leniency for our wrong? How many of us have shown mercy to someone who deserved to be punished? We will be judged in the exact same way we have shown or not shown mercy to others. Jesus Christ showered us with His mercy by shedding His blood on the cross for us when it should have been us nailed there.
Heavenly Father, how we praise You for Your unending mercy toward us. We ask that we would be sensitive to the Holy Spirit when we need to show mercy to others. Forgive us for those times we have failed to show mercy and have dealt out harsh punishment to others. We pray in the name of Jesus, Amen.
