Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful.Luke 6:36
Lashing back at our source of pain or discomfort is a human response. But we should remember what Jesus teaches us about responding to challenging people and situations. Do you remember how difficult you used to be before you were saved? Have you ever thought about the mercy our Father in heaven has extended to us?
The next time you’re presented with a situation that tempts you to respond in a negative way, remember to be merciful to the challenging individual and extend them mercy, just as your Father in heaven extended mercy to you.
Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. – Ephesians 4:32
