Is it easy for you to show mercy to those who hurt you? It’s easier perhaps to make things difficult for them and make them feel the misery we suffer, right?
But the way Jesus deals with difficult people is that of mercy and compassion. He didn’t brand or condemn as eveil those who put Him on the spot and accused Him. When your heart finds it hard to show mercy, try again. Look at others with Jesus’ eyes. The mercy and compassion we give may be the very ones we need for ourselves!
