All of us are looking for ways to get better at our relationships, our faith, and our life overall. But, we have all also accumulated a lot of bad habits over the course of our life and it can take a lot of time and effort to curb those and reverse them into good habits.
In some way or another, the Beatitudes can be seen as a list of things Jesus tells us will make us better and closer to following him. This one is no different, and in fact, may be the most applicable of all the Beatitudes — showing mercy.
This is a practice that has become all but absent in our current cultural, political, and sadly, religious climates. For followers of Jesus though, mercy is a non-negotiable. Even if you’re not a follower of Jesus, mercy is something that will most certainly make your life better. If you show it, you start to find it in more places than you ever thought you would.
