The Future Is As Bright As The Promises Of God

“Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart.” Prov. 3:3 (KJV)

In Christ, God has broken the cycle of judgment and retaliation. We have received mercy–underserved and unearned love. In the fifth Beatitude, Jesus invites us to share His character trait of mercy. But inflow and outgo must be matched. Mercy must be given away if we want to live in its flow…
The test of the greatness Christ offers us is to be merciful to those who do not return it. When we’ve endured disappointments, injustice, or hurts, we do not become bitter or sour but draw on and express mercy. This is not easy–not until we remember how merciful Christ has been to us. We are called to be a channel of divine mercy flowing through us to others. This is the source of the silent strength of greatness. Lloyd Ogilvie

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.” Matthew 5:7 (NASB)
