Luke 11:42 (KJV): But woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye tithe mint and rue and all manner of herbs, and pass over judgment and the love of God: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.
Reflection on God’s Word for Today - 12 Oct 2023
Many who profess to be Christ's fall short of God's expectation of His children. They want to be transactional with Jehovah, forgetting that God loves them unconditionally and expects them to do the same with others. Thanks to God's mercy, we didn't get the punishment we deserve, because His love for us covered all our shortcomings. Jehovah expects you and I to show similar love by extending mercy to others rather than judgement. I don't know about you, but I am convinced that the only way to please Jehovah is to be merciful to others, and if you struggle with that, you must ask help from the Holy Spirit, if indeed you are of Christ.
Pray: Spirit Divine, please create in me the willingness to freely and faithfully show mercy to others. #Mok
