Blessed Are The Merciful

The Bible says in Matthew 5:7 Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Mercy by definition is compassionate or kindly forbearance shown toward an offender, an enemy, or other person in one's power. The Psalmist said To the faithful you show yourself faithful, to the blameless you show yourself blameless (Psalm 18:25).

The law of mercy in the kingdom of heaven is simple. You grant mercy and you receive mercy. You withhold mercy and you get judgment. The blessed are merciful and therefore they receive mercy.
