I am a person who finds it special that God speaks to me and humbling to think that God might use me to speak to others.

Scripture:   Luke (NIV) 6:36 Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

Observation:  Justice is getting what is deserved.  Mercy is not getting what is deserved.  Grace is getting what is not deserved. 



That we are to be merciful implies that bad thing will happen to us. We will be tempted to “get even” and return the wrong we have suffered.   Those who are merciful do not repay the evil they have received. 

Application:     In this verse I am commanded to be merciful to others just as my Heavenly Father has been merciful to me.   When God forgives me, He is saying that Jesus death on the cross is sufficient to pay for my sins; when I forgive others, I am saying that Jesus death on the cross is sufficient to pay for those sins too.  The mercy that reaches to me can also reach through me. 

Prayer:   Lord, you are a merciful God.  Your loving kindness is new to me every morning!  How right it is that you require me to be the same way.  My your mercy reach through me to others.     Amen
