Show Mercy

“Don’t pick on people, jump on their failures,
criticize their faults— unless, of course,
you want the same treatment.
That critical spirit has a way of boomeranging.”
Matthew 7:1,2

How many times have you been jumped on for your failures? How many times have you been the one jumping on someone else?

I’ve been on both sides. If we focus on people’s faults and criticize them, watch out! it’s coming back.

The presidential election has caused a huge ruckus. But it’s a chance for us to show mercy. Treat people the way you would want to be treated.

Father, I will practice showing your love and mercy to my brothers and sisters.
