There is an interesting concept that I am getting a hold of in a deeper way. When we have mercy on others, we are having mercy on ourselves.

Here are a few scriptures to meditate on about mercy:

Pro 3:3 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:

Pro 17:15 He that justifieth the wicked, and he that condemneth the just, even they both are abomination to the LORD.

Pro 21:21 He that followeth after righteousness and mercy findeth life, righteousness, and honor.

Mat 5:7 Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.

Mat 7:2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.

Mat 12:7 But if ye had known what this meaneth, I will have mercy, and not sacrifice, ye would not have condemned the guiltless.

Mat 23:23 Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye pay tithe of mint and anise and cummin, and have omitted the weightier matters of the law, judgment, mercy, and faith: these ought ye to have done, and not to leave the other undone.

Luk 6:37 Judge not, and ye shall not be judged: condemn not, and ye shall not be condemned: forgive, and ye shall be forgiven:

Luk 10:37 And he said, He that showed mercy on him. Then said Jesus unto him, Go, and do thou likewise.

Joh 7:24 Judge not according to the appearance, but judge righteous judgment.

Joh 7:51 Doth our law judge any man, before it hear him, and know what he doeth?

Rom 14:3 Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him.

1Co 11:31 For if we would judge ourselves, we should not be judged.

Col 2:16 Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a holy day, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days:

Heb 10:30 For we know him that hath said, Vengeance belongeth unto me, I will recompense, saith the Lord. And again, The Lord shall judge his people.

Jas 2:13 For he shall have judgment without mercy, that hath showed no mercy; and mercy rejoiceth against judgment.

Jas 3:17 But the wisdom that is from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be entreated, full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality, and without hypocrisy.

Jas 4:11 Speak not evil one of another, brethren. He that speaketh evil of his brother, and judgeth his brother, speaketh evil of the law, and judgeth the law: but if thou judge the law, thou art not a doer of the law, but a judge.

One Response to “Christian Mercy & Judgment”

  1. 1. Gary Lee Says:

    Wisdom is not always silent but is often quiet. If I show mercy only to be assured that I shall obtain mercy for myself, there is the possibility that the understanding of grace we have logically deduced is partial at best.

    God’s love is not that narrow. It is wide and deep! The ways of the Eternal are not our ways, they are higher than we are. “…mercy laughs at judgment.”

    Perhaps when we learn that to hang on a cross and forgive those who put us there is the way, we will finally understand.
