What have I learned from the scriptures today?

Following Jesus:

Be Merciful

Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy” (Matthew 5:7).

To be merciful is to treat someone with patience and love, instead of being judgmental or harsh. Through His example, Jesus Christ taught us how to be merciful. Some men once brought a woman to Jesus and said they wanted to punish her for something bad she had done. Even though the woman had sinned and needed to repent, Jesus did not let the men hurt her. Instead, He showed the woman mercy by saying, “Go, and sin no more” (John 8:11).
