Mercy

Today is August 13th the our Bible Verse Prompt is Mercy. Where would we be without God’s mercy?

1 Peter 1:3-5 (ESV)

Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! According to his great mercy, he has caused us to be born again to a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead, to an inheritance that is imperishable, undefiled, and unfading, kept in heaven for you, who by God’s power are being guarded through faith for a salvation ready to be revealed in the last time.

From Maristella:

 “But go and learn what this means: ‘I desire mercy, not sacrifice.’ For I have not come to call the righteous, but sinners.”
Matthew 9:13 | NIV.

From Patsystitch:

Lamentations 3:22 God’s mercy is bigger than any mistake that you’ve made. His mercy is new every morning.

From Happy One at Life is Good:

Psalm 86:5 KJV

For thou, Lord, art good, and ready to forgive;
and plenteous in MERCY unto all them that call upon thee.

From Cheryl:

“He has shown you, O man, what is good; And what does the Lord require of you But to do justly, To love mercy, And to walk humbly with your God?” Micah 6:8
