Blessed are the merciful,
For they shall obtain (receive) mercy.
Mercy means – compassion, pardon. Affected by the suffering of the pain of the others. Withhold punishment.
I need Mercy – I need God to give me another chance. I used up all the chance that He has given it to me.
Lord’s prayer: Forgive us our sins, as we forgive those who sin against us.
In other words, the Lord is saying – if you give another chance to your neighbor, friend, a co-worker, then I will give you another chance.
Grace: is getting what we don’t deserve. à (it is a gift)
Mercy: Is not getting what we do deserve. à (It is an Attitude)
