Mercy in Action: A Heart of Transformation!

“Go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, and not sacrifice.’ For I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” Matthew 9:13

When it comes to living a fulfilling life, one key aspect that should never be overlooked is the practice of mercy and compassion towards others. Being merciful and compassionate is wisdom in action. It is easy to get caught up in our lives and forget about those around us who may be struggling or going through tough times. However, showing kindness and mercy can greatly impact someone’s day, week, or life.

Mercy is like a cool glass of water on a hot summer day; it refreshes the soul and relieves those parched from the heat of life’s difficulties. When we choose to act with mercy, we help others and transform our hearts in the process. It takes strength and courage to put aside our needs for a moment and focus on someone else’s well-being. Being merciful and compassionate is wisdom. I remembered a story about a recent visit to my friend’s home; we came across a small dog roaming on the road. After we stopped and called the dog over, we noticed that the dog was in bad shape but needed mercy and compassion from us.

.Luke 6:36-37 says, “Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. “Judge not, and you will not be judged; condemn not, and you will not be condemned; forgive, and you will be forgiven.”

The dog was covered in fleas and ticks and had not eaten in a while. I felt compassionated at that point. Even though we already have two dogs, I still took this dog home. After several trips to the vet, it greatly improved. Moreover, today, it has truly become a beloved member of our family. Mercy shows compassion or forgiveness toward someone—similar to the act of compassion I showed to the dog. There are people all around us who are hurting spiritually, need help financially, or are just emotionally disturbed and need you to speak the word of God to them. They are in bad shape because they are lost. We may not see them unless we are intentional, and we will miss the opportunity to make a difference in their lives.

Brethren, unless we see what Jesus sees, we will not feel what Jesus feels. Jesus was moved to compassion when He came across those in need. He showed mercy to those who accepted Him—as well as to those who rejected Him. As believers, we must also be merciful to those in need, regardless of whether they accept or reject Christ. Be Merciful! Amen. Proverbs 29:7 says, “A righteous person knows the rights of the poor; a wicked person does not understand such knowledge.” Amen.

1. Father, open my eyes to see the needs around me and be merciful to those in need.
2. Psalm 145:8 “The Lord is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. Amen.
