SHARING FROM GOD’S MERCY
We can’t believe everything we see or hear or read. That is because so many things are based on opinions and feelings rather than facts. For that reason, we shouldn’t be so eager to repeat things we aren’t certain about their validity. However, what we learn from God and His word brings us wisdom that can be shared with others. We can be certain of His word. When we go to Him eager to learn more about Him and ask Him to forgive us when we do wrong, He gives us what we need. Because of what God gives us when He shows us mercy, we are able to share it with others.
1 Corinthians 7:25b “But the Lord in his mercy has given me wisdom that can be trusted, and I will share it with you.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, we are so grateful for all You do. We are grateful we can be certain about You and Your word. When all else fails us, we know we have You to trust and to depend on. Your mercy gives us wisdom because we learn from our mistakes. Your mercy gives us wisdom that can be trusted because You have taught it to us. Help us today to be open to learn and to teach others what You have revealed to us. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
We can’t rely on information from the world but we can rely on God’s word.
Messages in the world get distorted and changed but God’s word never changes.
God’s mercy gives us wisdom because He teaches us through our suffering.
God’s wisdom can be trusted and we can find His wisdom in His word.
If we feel lost, afraid and confused, the only way to turn is toward God.
Matthew 3:2 “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.” (NLT)
