9/13/14 Daily Devotion

James 2:13 because judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment!

Mercy triumphs over judgment. Mercy triumphs over judgment, but what exactly does that mean? Judgment without mercy will be given to anyone who does not extend mercy to others. But as we offer mercy to others, mercy will be given in return, thus mercy triumphs over judgment. Does that sound fair? Why should the way we treat others matter? Well, it’s simple. If we are acting liking Christians, if we are living like Christians, it does matter. As Christians, we are representing God through our actions, through our words, through the presentation of our lives within this world. We have an easy choice: we can live up to the potential of God, thus treating others properly, or we can live up to our own potential or preferences and be treated in the same manner as we treat others. It’s an easy choice to make. What is your decision?

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me treat others in a way that demonstrates Your presence and mercy within my life.
