God always blesses those who are kind to the poor and helpless.
They’re the first ones God helps when they find themselves in any trouble.
MATTHEW 5:7 (NLT)
God blesses those who are merciful,
for they will be shown mercy.
God blesses those who show mercy to broken people.
Merciful God, be gracious to me and heal me. I cheapen myself when I fail to share your mercy and refuse to see the mercy others give to me. When I lose myself in thoughts of scarcity and distrust, I easily turn strangers into enemies. Help me to be with impoverished ones today as we share in your abundance. Amen.
