Beatitudes - Blessed are the Merciful
Mercy is not just an emotion or a kind disposition. Mercy is compassion put into action. We cannot talk about mercy without immediately thinking of the cross of Jesus Christ. For it was here that God acted out of grace in mercy to fallen, sinful man.
Let’s go out and show mercy to others in our families, in the church, in our community. Let’s purposely become involved with those who are hurting. Willingly forgive those who have wronged us. “Blessed are the merciful, approved by God are those who show compassion in action, for they will be shown mercy.”
