Mercy II:

Standard

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy” (Matthew 5.7)

“Merciful” adds an expanded word picture to me. I see a person so filled with mercy that they are ready to burst forth in extending it. This infers that it only takes a little poke – a little offense before mercy pours out of the one offended. Mercy is not reserved for the big personal transgressions – though it is needed there as well. One who is receiving the blessing of being merciful is ready to extend it even in the most incidental, quirky and otherwise irritating habits of those surrounding them.
