Context: After spending the night in prayer on a mountain, Jesus elects His disciples and then teaches a great crowd His sermon on the plain. Half-way through the sermon, He focuses on loving your enemies. Jesus concludes this section with the following words.
Luke 6:36 – “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful.”
Observation: The mercy that we show others should be equal to the mercy that God has shown us.
Application: I will look for opportunities today to show supernatural mercy – not giving people what they deserve.
Is there someone in your life that you need to be merciful to, just as your Father has been merciful to you?
