Good morning.


Our reactions to others during this pandemic have so polarized our society, even within our homes, our families. To vaccinate or not to vaccinate. Argument and counter-argument reign over many of the factors on which informed decisions should be made.


Sadly, there remains more questions than answers. We should surely respect the individual’s decisions because we all base our actions on imperfect information.


So how should we as followers of Christ respond to those who do not share our views/opinions?


This is what Jesus had to say. "Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy."

(Matthew 5:7)


James, the brother of Jesus expanded on this when he wrote, "judgment without mercy will be shown to anyone who has not been merciful. Mercy triumphs over judgment." (James 2:13)


The golden rule tells us how to be merciful. "Do to others as you would have them do to you." (Luke 6:31‭) Luke continues, "Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful." (Luke 6:36)


Today let's allow mercy to shine through in our dealings with those we come in contact with.


Mercy triumphs over judgment.


Blessings.

Mike and Daphne
