(KJV,) MATTHEW 5:7
(7) Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
Brethren, though the world looks flat from humanly perspectives, we live in a world, that rotates within the universe of glory; it is marvellous in the eyes of our Father, knowingly or unknowingly, everything that humanity does to one another in this world, does reciprocate as well; life is a give and take situation, we give, we receive, whatever we invest to our own lives or lives of others, that is what we will receive; believe it or not, we reap what we sow, positively or negatively, there will be payback times: therefore, let us not be weary in well doing; for in due season, we shall reap, if we faint not. (Galatians 6:9); if we do evil against one another, sooner or later, unexpectedly evil will boomerang into our own lives.
In the above text, Jesus said, "Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy."; that is, if we show mercy on others, do goodwill to the needy, we ought to rejoice, be happy, for we are already blessed in the first place to be able to give from what we have received, and surely, our coffers will never run dry, but will receive more replenishments from Jesus Christ, so we may continue to do his goodwill; therefore, let us continue to shine lights of mercies upon others, not only upon love ones, but haters as well, people we know within the secular world, family and friends or strangers from overseas, with the mindset of Christ, know that everything we do on earth, we do them all to Jesus Christ, and not get ahead of others, prove ourselves that we are capable of doing those things, whether we receive earthly recognitions and applauses of humanity or not; Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior is our rewarder, nothing we do on this earth, towards one another is done in vain, every movements we make on this earth, are either movements towards life advancements, derailments or failures; therefore, whatever we do in life, let us think wisely about the consequences that may arise in the future, before we endeavor to follow through with our decision makings; for what goes around, sooner or later will surely come back into our lives.
Therefore, let us have mercy and compassion on others, and not turn away from helping people in negative situations, reach out, touch lives with our blessings, shine lights of grace upon others, the same ways, we receive the grace of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ everyday; for we breathe free air into our lungs, no one pays for the air they breathe, without minutes of free air, our bodies will bluelize, freeze, lay emotionless, turn into dust of the ground; this is a great gift of life, given freely to humanity; if we say, we have not received blessings from Jesus Christ, this is an example of his grace, regardless of how we view life, we are blessed to be alive on earth, and Jesus Christ requires us to bless others as well; at times, we may not reap the fruitfulness of our positiveness right away, regardless, whatever we have done in past, presently doing and will do in the future for Jesus, are not done in vain, there are earthly and eternal blessings to receive for being merciful unto others; therefore, let us have mercy on others, that we ourselves continue to receive mercies of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ forevermore.
Dearly beloved, to be merciful, is to possess an attribute of kindness, be tenderhearted, forgive one another, sympathize with those who are down stricken, accommodate one another, take a step up to their situations, help them overcome; regardless of their differences, ethnicity, national origins, social or genders; let us go above and beyond our great selves, lay aside our negativities, help make other lives worth living; this is also one of the major attributes of our Father, (Psalm 116:5); Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior, (Matthew 14:14); forever and evermore shall be. Amen and Amen!
