JANUARY 24 – MERCY

01/24 James 2:10-13
10 And the person who keeps all of the laws except one is as guilty as the person who has broken all of God’s laws. 11 For the same God who said, “Do not commit adultery,” also said, “Do not murder.” So if you murder someone, you have broken the entire law, even if you do not commit adultery. 12 So whenever you speak, or whatever you do, remember that you will be judged by the law of love, the law that set you free. 13 For there will be no mercy for you if you have not been merciful to others. But if you have been merciful, then God’s mercy toward you will win out over his judgment against you.
MERCY
Mercy begins at home. Our family deserves our best and without mercy we cannot give them our best. Mercy is required as we become more like Jesus. Remember the only person you can change is you. People need us to care for them not try to change them. Mercy is critical for us to be able to glorify God by the way we live.
