8th January 2022 Devotional Message The Merciful – 8th January 2022

The merciful are those who show mercy even when someone hurts them. From our Bible passage for today, Jesus used the parable of the servant who refused to show mercy to a debtor even after receiving a pardon from his master. The master in his judgment revoked his mercy and threw the unmerciful servant into prison. No wonder The Beatitudes state that the merciful shall obtain mercy.. (Matthew 5:7)

How do you treat your friends and siblings when they offend you? Do you react in anger, shove them aside or insist on getting your pound of flesh? In Matthew 6:14, Jesus said:
“For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you.”

God, therefore, expects every child of His to forgive even before being offended. Being merciful is not just about showing mercy to offenders. If, for instance, you find it difficult to help the needy, especially when it lies within your power, you are not merciful. Do you want God and man to show you mercy? Be merciful.

KEY POINT: Father, please show me mercy.

HYMN: Sing hymn 18

BIBLE IN ONE YEAR:
