Look for an opportunity to demonstrate mercy today. When someone wrongs you, instead of responding in anger, vengeance, or pride - respond with mercy.

"Do not repay anyone evil for evil. Be careful to do what is right in the eyes of everyone. 18 If it is possible, as far as it depends on you, live at peace with everyone. 19 Do not take revenge, my dear friends, but leave room for God’s wrath, for it is written: 'It is mine to avenge; I will repay,' says the Lord. 20On the contrary: If your enemy is hungry, feed him; if he is thirsty, give him something to drink. In doing this, you will heap burning coals on his head. 21 Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good." (Romans 12:17-21)
i'm learning in my old age to pray for and bless those who do and think differently than i do, i.e. ride my bumper, cut me off on the road when passing, etc. But godliness with contentment is great gain! lTimothy 6:6ReplyDelete
Often times its those that don't deserve Mercy that need it the most.ReplyDelete
