For God will not show mercy when he judges the person who has not been merciful; but mercy triumphs over judgement.James 2:13 GNB Where is mercy found ultimately? Look to the cross…
Do you see God with a big stick ready to punish you when you do something wrong? That’s judgement. Yet God has compassion and his desire is too show mercy, love and grace. He doesn’t wave a stick at you!
At the cross we see the full mercy of God for sin. It’s like God waving a big stick at Jesus for our sin! He took the punishment for us so we don’t have too.
Clearing away for us to have a relationship with God! Wow!
Here’s a prayer for today:
Dear Father God, thank you for your mercy which always triumphs over judgement. Help me today to be less judging and not to wave a stick when I don’t agree with something, and instead to show kindness and mercy. To know your peace today. Amen.
