“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.”
These verses are so challenging. The call to treat others how we want to be treated is a high one indeed! Knowing we serve a God who is perfect in justice and mercy is mind-blowing. Thank the Lord that His mercy always covers His judgments. How often have we sinned and prayed to ask God to forgive us and clean our metaphorical slates? Can we claim to be merciful towards others when we’d rather punish them for their wrongdoings? God is clear that He shows no mercy to those who have shown no mercy to others.
"MERCY TRIUMPHS OVER JUDGEMENT!"
LORD, you are merciful and just! Thank you for showing me mercy by sending your son to cancel the debt of my sin. Please forgive me for trying to take justice into my own hands. Please help me to be merciful and kind.
