“So speak and so act as those who are to be judged under the law of liberty. For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.”
• Most of the time, our problem is that we desire mercy for ourselves and judgement for others! We should see others through God’s eyes and never forget that the cross is for all who believe on the name of Jesus! Our goodness did not put us in a “deserving” category, but God’s mercy and grace brought us into a family of believers! If we do not have the time or desire to speak to those people who God puts in our path, it is very doubtful that we love them or that we understand God’s love for us.
Matthew 6:14-15 “For if you forgive others their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you, but if you do not forgive others their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.”
Dear Lord, please change our hearts so that we may see others through your eyes and help us to replace our judgmental and unforgiving attitudes with mercy and love. Amen
