The world often gives us injustice and adversity. It is up to us to choose how to respond. Abraham Lincoln said that, "I have always found that mercy bears richer fruits than strict justice." Before we respond to the situations we face, we can consider God's will and His mercy!
God is a merciful God. He shows mercy to each and everyone of us, even while we are still sinners. Because of the mercy that God has shown us, we should in turn respond with mercy. When we show mercy, we can create an environment that allows for richer fruits of justice, accountability, forgiveness and love. We can have mercy that creates a better world!
Turn to God and then have mercy in your life!
Thank You for the mercy that you have shown me. Help me to show mercy to others. In Jesus' name I pray, amen.
