Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy. ~ Matthew 5:7 ~
These are the words of our Lord Jesus Christ from the Sermon on the Mount.
We read that Jesus had compassion on the multitude because they were like sheep without a shepherd. He forgave the thief on the cross beside Him and promised that he would be with Jesus in Paradise that very day. Our Lord is mercy personified. We should reflect this truth in our relationship with others.
