Be Merciful

"What have you done that nobody has done before? You got me a house, a job and a car, what is the big deal? Are you the first person to ever help a friend, abeg get out of here"

Nosa just couldn't cry. Tim was his childhood friend who fell on bad times and Nosa helped him. Now things were quite good and he was living recklessly, anytime Nosa tried to advise him he would flare up. 

Shortly after, Tim got into trouble and cried back to Nosa for help. What would you do? 

The proper thing is to tell him to get out right? He is responsible for his misfortune and of course you will be justified BUT there is something you must never forget. 

Mercy is undeserved favor, let mercy be your act of gratitude to God. It could have been you coming to beg but God kept you. When you show mercy to people, on the day you need mercy you will not lack it as well. 

The Bible says in Matthew 5:7 (ESV) blessed are the merciful, for they shall receive mercy.

From today be on the lookout for people you can show mercy, it is going into an account that will speak for you on the day you need it. 

You too can be a social media evangelist. Please share so that others can be blessed as you have been blessed. #ThankYouJesus
