Blessed are the {MERCIFUL} for they shall receive mercy. – Matthew 5:7

Do you ever feel like you wish someone would just give you a little grace and mercy when you fall short?

I sure do.

There are so many days where I simply don’t measure up – at home, with my family and with myself.

Those are the days I pray someone finds it in their heart of hearts to be gracious and give mercy freely, even when I’ve messed up everything and don’t deserve it one bit.

Here’s the thing – would I do the same for them?

Would I be the one to give mercy when it is least deserved?

Hmmm.

Tough question.

That’s exactly what this Beatitude reminds me.

7 “You’re blessed when you care. At the moment of being ‘care-full,’ you find yourselves cared for. – Matthew 5:7 The Message

That’s it.

Care for others. Find yourself being cared for.

Oh, that we could live that love out loud.
