"Faye's daily words of encouragement" # 30 Todays word Is: Mercy"

Definition of the word Mercy: To have mercy  or compassion on someone, an act of forgiveness.

Matthews chapter 9 -13 : But go ye and learn what meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice: for I am not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.

Romans chapter 12 - 1 : I beseech you, therefore brethren, by the mercies of God, that ye present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy acceptable unto Gods, which is your reasonable service.

Matthews chapter 5 - 7 : Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy.

James chapter 2 - 13 : For he shall ahve judgement  without mercy, that hath shewed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judegement.

Mercy means to forgive and let go of the transgression .  When someone we care about  is going through their miseries, because they caused us some heartache or pain, we have to show them some mercy.  Although, sometimes for us; mercy is hard for us to give, if we have been hurt by someone we care about.  If we pray to God and ask him to soften our heart, then mercy and forgiveness is obtainable.  If God can have mercy upon us, we should by the kindness of our hearts,have mercy on someone else.  It feels really good to forgive and be able to move on.

      Barbara, you're right about praying for both, remember the bible says to be good to those that treat you wrong, because when you do you will be heaping fiery coals on top of their heads. Thank you for your comment and feedback. creativeone59

      You are so right but how can you ask God to soften your heart when someone that you've tried to like is draining the life out of you? They are scandalizing you and your families name, all because your daughter is leaving them and moving back home.I guess I have to ask God to soften the both or our hearts.

      During times I have a hard time doing this, I think about how I would want someone to have mercy on me if I offended them or did them wrong.

      Thank you for your hub but it is one thing I cannot do is forgive because I can't forget and therefore it would be meaningless. I just can't pretend. It takes a long time to turn but when I do that I can't go back and that person done a lot if not the lot.
