MID-WEEK

Last week: Be merciful.
This week: Give lavishly.

Messengers of Mercy

Do you remember that wonderful old Marvin Gaye song “Mercy Mercy Me”? In that was a deep biblical truth – mercy given by us comes back to us in mercy from God.

The command of Jesus to be merciful comes with the promise that we will receive mercy as we dispense it. James goes on to say that failure to give mercy will result in judgment.

May we be messengers of mercy:

In prayer
In giving
In sharing Christ
In forgiving
In blessing enemies
In serving.

Mercy triumphs over judgment.
Mercy melts hard hearts.
Mercy changes everything!

In the merciful Generosity of Jesus, Denis
