Jesus said to his disciples, “be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven; give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.” Luke 6:36–38
“Merciful Father, help me to show your mercy to the people in my life that I may have the hardest time loving.” Henri Nouwen.
