Mercy & Thankfulness
Okay, I'm going to do something a little different this Sunday morning with the scripture verses I want to share with you.
Most of you know, I read my One Year Bible for my daily morning prayer time. Each day is comprised of a passage from the Old Testament, a passage from the New Testament, a Psalm and a Proverb.
Today the last verse of the New Testament part was complimented beautifully with the first part of the Psalm. This is what I want to share with you today!
Luke 10 36-37 (ESV)
Which of these three, do you think, proved to be a neighbor to the man who fell among the robbers?"
He said, "The one who showed him mercy." And Jesus said to him, "You go, and do likewise."
Psalm 75:1 (ESV)
We give thanks to You , O God; we give thanks, for Your name is near.
We recount Your wondrous deeds.
And because you did... I have the words of the Psalmist on my heart. I know my God is near. I have felt His presence every step of the way. I give thanks to my God, whom has been near to me through you!
Today, I am recounting His wondrous deeds... that He has and is still performing through you!
Today, if you have been shown mercy - thank Him and recount His wondrous deeds!
