Mercy Be Yours in Abundance


“Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Talk and act like a person expecting to be judged by the Rule that sets us free. For if you refuse to act kindly, you can hardly expect to be treated kindly. Kind mercy wins over harsh judgment every time. Be merciful to those who doubt. Who needs a doctor: the healthy or the sick? Go figure out what this Scripture means: ‘I’m after mercy, not religion.’ I’m here to invite outsiders, not coddle insiders. Once you were not a people, but now you are the people of God; once you had not received mercy, but now you have received mercy. The wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy… Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance.”
(Luke 6: 36; James 2: 12, 13; Jude 22; Matt 9: 12, 13; 1 Pet 2: 10; James 3: 17; Jude 2)

“Pilate was merciful till it became risky.” -CS Lewis (The Screwtape Letters)
Go bless people today with mercy and grace. And put your heart into it.
