Psalm 57:1

Verse: Have mercy on me, my God, have mercy on me, for in you I take refuge. I will take refuge in the shadow of your wings until the disaster has passed.

Insight: Mercy is God not giving us what we deserve. Isn’t that amazing. He extends mercy for us rather than judgement. It’s because of his great love for us that he offers this extreme kindness through Christ. Walk in it today and consider extending it to others.

Prayer: Lord, you know my natural tendencies. Some days I start with mercy and others I can lean towards judgement too quickly. Help me to give to others (especially those closest to me) what you have given to me… Mercy.
