Picture Mercy

Matthew 5:7
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.
Commentary
To be merciful is to be like God. Mercy is part of God’s character. Many times when we feel anger or resentment well up inside of us forgiveness and mercy rush from the Holy Spirit to go to war with our own urges of revenge. How much were you forgiven by God? Consider what it cost God to forgive you. You were purchased. In showing mercy to others we share what God has done for us in Christ; putting on display the gospel message. Forgive. Step in and intercede for someone in trouble. Believe in someone who doesn’t deserve it. He is with you.
