We’ve been taught this passage in the Sermon on the Mount for a long time…”You have to give mercy to others before God will give mercy to you…” “You get what you deserve!” Slow down Slam-Dancer…not so fast…it doesn’t quite mean that. You will be very pleased to learn what Matthew 5:7 “Blessed are the merciful, for they shall be shown mercy” really means.
We get into the meat of the teaching at 9 minutes and 24 seconds of the recording if you want to skip ahead through the pleasantries. Some folks like to hear the exchanges before we really get going and others don’t.
Either way, I pray this message blesses you.
