While he was at table in his house, many tax collectors and sinners came and sat with Jesus and his disciples. The Pharisees saw this and said to his disciples, “Why does your teacher eat with tax collectors and sinners?” He heard this and said, “Those who are well do not need a physician, but the sick do. Go and learn the meaning of the words, I desire mercy, not sacrifice. I did not come to call the righteous but sinners.” MT 9:10-13
Imagine Jesus, who sits in the midst of sinners. See his eyes. He does not condemn. He looks with love and mercy. He invites you and me to such a charity. Today, try to do the mercy of Jesus. You can change the world!
Brothers and sisters: I, a prisoner for the Lord, urge you to live in a manner worthy of the call you have received, with all humility and gentleness, with patience, bearing with one another through love, striving to preserve the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. EPH 4:1-3
Lord Jesus, make me patient and merciful. I want to be merciful like You!
