“God blesses those who are merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.”

‭‭Matthew‬ ‭5:7‬ ‭NLT‬‬

What does ‘mercy’ mean?
  • Compassion
  • Pity
  • Sympathy
  • Forgiveness
  • Kindness
  • Tenderheartedness
  • To refrain from punishing those who have wronged us

Biblical mercy is to get in the skin of another, to actually think their thoughts and feel their emotions and then to care for them in a very tangible way.

“But Jesus said, “No, go home to your family, and tell them everything the Lord has done for you and how merciful he has been.””
‭‭Mark‬ ‭5:19‬ ‭NLT‬‬

Who are the merciful?

‭‭Ephesians‬ ‭2:1-7‬

How can we be merciful?
  • By changing a grudge into forgiveness

Nothing moves us to forgive others like the amazing realization that God has forgiven our sin.
