BLESSED ARE THE MERCIFUL

PSALM 41:1 (TPT)
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.


SUMMARY SENTENCE
God blesses those who show mercy to broken people.

PRAYER
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.
