“Thus says the LORD of hosts: ‘Execute true justice, Show mercy and compassion Everyone to his brother.” Zechariah 7:9
It really is hard to show justice, mercy and compassion to people who just hate! They hate God, they hate you for loving God and they even hate their country! Here the LORD tells us to show compassion and love OUCH!
“But I say to you who hear: Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you.” Luke 6:28-29
As we look around us we see the world becoming more vile and filled with hate! The LORD calls us to be His loving light, reflectors so to speak of His great mercy, grace and love! Let us be careful of how we react to the situations going on around us! Let us shine for the LORD reflecting His glory.
“The LORD is gracious and full of compassion, Slow to anger and great in mercy.” Psalm 145:8
This is how our LORD is, so let us reflect who He is today and not get all caught up in the hatred and vileness of the world! Have a blessed day!
