Share Mercy. Receive Mercy.

Matthew 5:7, Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. 

Mercy is one of the greatest blessings in life! When you realize that you have come short or failed to deliver, it is mercy that you need.

On those occasions when we have sinned or made mistakes, we don't demand justice. We ask for mercy.

More importantly, when we have the opportunity to come down hard on someone else, we have only to consider these words from Jesus and remember that mercy is a gift that is both shared and received.

Be sure that you are making mercy "deposits," so that you will be able to "withdraw" mercy when you need it.

And you and I will most certainly need mercy, sooner or later (Probably sooner!)
