“Full House” wasn’t a Christian sitcom, but those words are taken straight from the Bible, and they are wise words for us to heed today. In Matthew 5:7 (ESV), Jesus encouraged his followers with these words: ““Blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.”
Being merciful means extending mercy to anyone in need of mercy, offering forgiveness to the one who needs forgiveness, or giving help to those who are in need. Being merciful is the outward expression of hungering after righteousness (Matt. 5:6).
God showed us mercy, even while we were still sinners (Eph. 2:4-5). We didn’t deserve it, but He offered it anyway. Furthermore, the Scriptures tell us that when we show mercy to others, we are imitating Christ - and that, after all, is the goal of the Christian life. If you want to obtain the mercy of Christ, both now and in eternity, then show mercy to those around you. “Blessed are the merciful, For they shall receive mercy” (Matthew 5:7, ESV).
