Have you received mercy?

Matthew 5:7. "Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

The reason why we extend mercy is not because of our moral goodness but because of God's work of mercy in us.  In God's kingdom, the blessed are those who extend mercy.  Mercy is not giving others what they deserve.  If we got what we deserve. we would be most miserable.  Those who show mercy have been transformed by mercy.  We come to see that we have no right to hold on to bitterness of unforgiveness.  We forgive others because of the work of God in us.  Have you received mercy?  Do you show mercy?
