How often is it that you need the mercy of God?
If we honestly examine ourselves we will find out that we need His mercy more often than we think. Mercy is not for those who are innocent, but for it is for those who make mistakes, and for those who have missed the mark, that is who mercy is for!
Luke 18:9-14 Tells the story of two men who go up to the temple to pray, one a Pharisse the other a publican. At the conclusion of their prayers only one left the temple righteous in the eyes of God. The Publican humbled himself in repentance asking God to forgive him of all his sins. He found out that he could not trust himself or anyone else but God. Just as the publican experienced the mercies of God so can we, through humility and repentance.
Live and be a blessing!
