SMS 28: Matthew 5:7

Blessed are the merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.

We are blessed as we act the way God does – in mercy. This means loving people as we love ourselves; responding to their physical, emotional, and spiritual needs; getting out of our way to help. For that is exactly what God does to us.

Why is it hard for us to show mercy and kindness?

Do we feel blessed when we help others?
