God of Mercy

May 7, 2023

Matthew 5:7
Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.

Those who show mercy have been shown mercy. Haddon Robinson says “Grace is Gods reaction to our sinfulness, mercy is his reaction to our misery” God’s mercy understands our situation, feels our pain, and moves toward treating our hurt. We should do the same for others! This is why Jesus taught in Matthew 5:7, “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy” The trouble in Jesus’ day and today is not whether folks have heard about mercy or even accept mercy as an admirable attribute. The problem then and now is to find someone who will show mercy. Will we be that someone?
