All of us know something about the struggle of forgiveness and therefore it is important to understand the relationship mercy and forgiveness. Mercy is broader that forgiveness and forgiveness goes further than mercy. how then do we cultivate forgiveness that flows out of mercy? “Blessed are the merciful for they shall receive mercy” – Matthew 5:7
Mercy is the character of God and therefore be ours as well. It is God’s call to us and we must embrace every opportunity to manifest mercy. in this 5th Beatitude Jesus call the merciful blessed.
