because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment.
James 2:13 NIV
But the wisdom that comes from heaven is first of all pure; then peace-loving, considerate, submissive, full of mercy and good fruit, impartial and sincere. Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.
James 3:17-18 NIV
"Justice will prevail!" Actually, we would all be damned if justice prevailed. How do I teach myself to love mercy more than judgement? I think it is a work of the Holy Spirit.
Heavenly Father, thank you for your mercy in sparing me the judgement that I deserve for my sin. Jesus, thank you for making peace between me and God by unjustly taking my punishment on yourself. I want to love mercy, and I want to be a peacemaker. Holy Spirit, I want to follow you today. I love you, and I pray in the name of Jesus.
