No. 5 Be Merciful

Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.

Matthew 5:6; Luke 6:36

‘Lord, have mercy on me, who sins.’ I ask You to help me to be like You, and forgive me when I fail. You ask me to do the same for others. Help those in trouble; be sympathetic, tender, responsive, and compassionate. No blame game, no lusty fault-finders playing hide and seek. To be Christ-like, to be God-like is to overlook offenses, and to pity the ignorant sinner. To be Christ-like is better than being right.
