Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.” Matthew 5:7 (KJV)
Meekness, nor mercy are weaknesses, but great strength. Like meekness mercy is often misunderstood. I do not think I can begin to fully understand it myself, but I know that I sure need it, and so does the people of the whole world.
The GOD who created all things extends mercy to us all every moment of every day. The next breath you and I take, comes at God’s mercy. The next beat of our heart comes by God’s mercy. He extends mercy so that we might have every opportunity to know Him.
What do I want for Christmas?
I want and receive God’s mercy; therefore, I want to be sure that I extend mercy to others around me. If I cannot grant it to others is good evidence that I have not received it.
