Should you not have shown mercy to your fellow slave, just as I showed it to you?’
We at times forget how merciful the Lord has been to us. When we forget, it is easy to look down and condemn others.
It is worthwhile to reflect on where you have come from and the blessings of God in your life, least you forget the reason for living and your hope for eternal life.
Everyone is at different places with the Lord. Our prayer should be that they completely give themselves over to His will, submitting to the Lordship of Jesus Christ.
Everything else is meaningless. But a soul that comes to the Lord is eternal! Angels rejoice at this!
Freely give mercy. It doesn’t cost you anything, other than a little pride at times. And remember that you have been given mercy too!
Lord, help me to look at others as You see them. Help me to be patient and kind and give You time to move in other’s lives.
