Quality of Mercy

Written by Boyd Bailey

Thoughts from daily Bible reading for today- April 30, 2013

But because of his great love for us, God, who is rich in mercy, made us alive with Christ even when we were dead in transgressions—it is by grace you have been saved. Ephesians 2:4-5

The quality of God’s mercy is not obstructed. Like the gentle and ceaseless flow of a bubbling brook, it refreshes all who come to drink. Those refreshed can fill their spiritual buckets and bless others who in their parched suffering have yet to taste heaven’s liquid love. Yes, the mineral rights of Almighty God’s mercy are inexhaustible and its riches are more than can ever be spent. His mercy shows compassion, nullifies judgment, covers pain and withholds what is deserved.

Do you lift up prayers of gratitude for the rich mercy of your Heavenly Father? Is mercy your manner of speech and conduct? Mercy exists like the foyer of your home to welcome  the undeserving and those who feel shame, but not hope. Like a critical care unit in a hospital, make your home a ward of mercy for those who need healing, love and acceptance. Adult children show up where they will be accepted, not judged…cared for, not condemned. Mercy is tender.

To give his people the knowledge of salvation through the forgiveness of their sins, because of the tender mercy of our God. Luke 1:77-78

Our pride is unmoved by mercy; neither extending or receiving. With a granite like face, grace is absent. Our pride’s philosophy is an “eye for an eye,” with no eye on God’s eternal perspective of   mercy. We desperately need to daily approach His throne of grace and mercy with our needy hearts. Humility looks in the mirror first ata candidate for Christ’s mercy.

Moreover, mercy is a perquisite step toward forgiveness. As we cry out, “God be merciful to me a sinner,” we are positioned to be forgiven and to forgive. Thus, cling to the mercy of Christ who graciously gives to you in abundance. Be a man or woman of mercy, as you experience from others their: insecurities, fears, struggles, rejection, arrogance and accusations. Lean into mercy, take responsibility where another won’t. Often, give and take this rich quality of mercy unobstructed!

Prayer: Heavenly Father thank You for Your rich mercy; make me a person of rich mercy.

    I am the proprietor of JustCBD brand (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently looking to develop my wholesale side of business. I really hope that anybody at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance 🙂 I thought that the very best way to do this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if anybody could recommend a reputable site where I can get CBD Shops B2B Data List I am already considering creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. Unsure which one would be the best selection and would appreciate any support on this. Or would it be much simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Suggestions?

  3. You made some good points there. I checked on the internet to learn more about the issue and found most people will go along with your views on this site.

    The very next time I read a blog, I hope that it does not fail me just as much as this particular one. After all, Yes, it was my choice to read, however I really thought you would have something useful to talk about. All I hear is a bunch of moaning about something that you could fix if you were not too busy looking for attention.
