The Beatitudes (5)

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

Mercy is not only kindness and compassion toward others but also forgiveness for those who might not show remorse. Being saved by the mercy of God through Jesus should inspire those of faith to show that same mercy as a reflection of the unchanging nature of God. At the same time this continued showing of mercy will be continually given back to us by God as promised in this passage. The opposition to mercy is judgment which is not the responsibility of His chosen but of God Himself. Again this attitude of unconditional mercy and reflection of God results in our peace, happiness, and blessedness.

(Matthew 18:33) 33 And should not you have had mercy on your fellow servant, as I had mercy on you?’

(James 2:13) 13 For judgment is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
