God’s mercy to us is the motivation for showing mercy to others. Remember, you will never be asked to forgive someone else more than God has forgiven you. Rick Warren
When I was out walking today around a park near where I live I was struck by the notion that the water I was looking at was a real symbol of God’s infinite mercy for me. God’s mercy is absolutely endless and no matter what is never taken from us. Our God loves each and every one of us as a precious child. No matter how often we sin or turn our backs on God our God does not ever give up on us. God’s unconditional love for us is beyond our comprehension.
In the Gospel of St. John, chapter 4 verse 16 we read, “God is love, and all who live in love, live in God, and God lives in them”. We are called to live this scripture in our daily living. When we live this way we are able to help our brothers and sisters in their daily living. We are called to spread God’s love for us to others and spread light in our world.
Love of God and neighbor is a tremendous virtue in our lives. We need to always share this great blessing with others.
