I heard that a way to describe the word “mercy” is undeserved forgiveness.
Mercy is “a form of love shown to the needy or unworthy.”
God loves to show us mercy! The Word says that He “delights in showing mercy.”
Our Father is rich in mercy and offers more than enough for everyone. His mercies are new every morning, and there is nothing you can do to separate yourself from God’s love.
But what about us? Do we delight in showing mercy? Are our mercies new every morning?
God doesn’t just desire to show us mercy but expects that we show mercy to others, even when they don’t deserve it.
Extending forgiveness and mercy gets easier when we reflect on the mercy God has shown us.
Let’s let go of the grudges, hurts, offenses, and pain that keep us from releasing God-like love. Forgiveness and mercy will offer YOU freedom.
Today is filled with new mercies from the Father. Extend that same love to someone in your life.
Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Matthew 5:7 (NIV)
