…and the greatest of these is love 1Corinthians 13:13
The last couple of weeks almost daily it seems I read, see or hear something about the Mercy of God. Usually that means somebody else might need to hear about it too. Todays post is a little like a toddler; short and sweet but full of might! Here are some nuggets of Mercy...
*Love is the greatest virtue and mercy is the highest form of love.
*Mercy is a free and undeserved gift from the Father that is the opposite of what we deserve and it’s given completely out of love.
*Mercy is bigger than forgiveness. Mercy allows you to look at those you’ve forgiven with a hope for their holiness.
*Mercy requires humility.
*Humility is not about thinking less of ourselves but thinking of ourselves less…if we are thinking of ourselves less, we can think of the Father more which always leads to loving and merciful thinking and actions.
*Pride is the enemy of a merciful life and not one person in recorded history ever choked to death on their pride.
*He who knows how to forgive and show mercy prepares for himself many graces from God. As often as I look upon the cross, so often will I forgive with all my heart. St. Faustina
A Seed To Plant: Ask God to show you the places in your life where his mercy needs to be received and given.
Blessings on your day!
