Being merciful was not a chore for Jesus. Why is it so hard for us? People always want to punish others, but why? Being merciful is part of living a Christian life - especially showing mercy to those who are more difficult to love. Giving people a break, even if they’re rude is not just kind - it’s a form of mercy because you’re not being rude back at them like most people would.
Let’s follow the golden rule more and more - treating others the way you want them to treat you and remembering that Jesus is walking right beside you and loves them just as much as He loves you.
