The Blessed Life: Blessed Are the Merciful ~ Matthew 5:7

Almighty Blessed God, You are indeed merciful.  You have lavished your mercy upon us, extravagant, abundant and abounding.  Lord, we confess our desire for comforts and ease often turns us inward to focus on our own wants and needs instead of the burdens, struggles and wanderings of others.  We confess our selfishness, our harshness, our criticism and indifference.  We point to our busyness lack of resources as reasons to not show mercy.  Lord, we confess this morning that our lack of mercy has nothing to do with our calendar or our checkbook, but with our heart.  Lord, remind us again this morning of the great mercy which we have been shown and stir us to be merciful.  May we reflect with great joy and vigor the extravagant mercy we have been shown by your hand.   Thank you Lord, for showing us great mercy again this morning.  Help us, LORD, to trust Christ’s mercy and His great love which He has showed us this morning as we seek to be merciful.  Amen & Amen.
