VerseD: Matthew 5:7

“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.”
Matthew 5:7, ESV

Our Lord has shown us mercy by dying in our place.

We can at least show mercy to our fellow fallen humans in response.

VerseD: 2 Corinthians 5:7

for we walk by faith, not by sight.
2 Corinthians 5:7, ESV

We live in a corrupt, fallen world, full of people made in God’s image but with corrupt, fallen hearts and minds. They are inherently against Christ.

Therefore, we walk by faith knowing things will not get better until the new Earth, and people will be hostile and stupid even as we love them.
