Blessed Are the Merciful

Be kind to all, for we do not know what their trials are. They may be suffering greatly and their only hope is through us, through whom the light of Jesus shines. Bless them and give them hope. They do not know what their end is as we do.

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.”

(Matthew 5:7)

Show mercy to the ungrateful, for as Jesus showed mercy to those who killed him, so ought we to show mercy on them. We know our salvation is sure. We do not have to worry that we will fall under judgment, for our judgment is now and our hope is in Jesus who died for us.

Every knee will one day bow to the Lord. Take heed, remain faithful and true to our God, who will show mercy on us when we come before His throne of judgment. Have mercy on those who do not believe, for their fate is to also to go before the Lord of Hosts.

Have mercy on the arrogant, for their end is in God’s hands. Show grace to the proud, for they know not what they do. Bless all, show kindness to the unkind and give to those who ask. Never lose hope, for our salvation is sure. Blessed are the merciful.

  1. I have to keep reminding myself of these truths when driving. Most of the other drivers probably do not know Jesus, and I have repented many times of failing to use my car to testify to the grace of our Father. Thanx for this reminder… again. 😞
