Mercy Given

Scripture

For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment. – James 2:13

Observation

If we are not merciful to others, we will not be shown mercy. Mercy always triumphs over judgement. 

Application

In scripture we are always reminded “what you sow you shall also reap”. We are also to “forgive as we have been forgiven”.  The same is true for mercy. We must express mercy to others so that we may receive mercy from our Heavenly Father. If our hearts are judgmental toward others it reveals a lack of humility before God, thus we will not receive the mercy we so desperately need.  

Prayer

Lord, work in us so that we demonstrate mercy to others. Soften our hearts so we may respond with grace and gratitude to others in our lives as you have expressed to us.
