MERCY AND TRUTH, INSIDE AND OUT

“Let not mercy and truth forsake you. Bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart.” Proverbs 3:3

God’s mercy and truth should be part of who we are as Christ followers.

On the inside, trust in God’s mercy. Rejoice in God’s mercy. On the outside, show God’s mercy to others, just as He pours it out on us.

On the inside, believe God’s truth. On the outside, walk in His truth, and let it guide our thoughts, attitudes and activities.

What’s on the inside comes out. Always. Let it be mercy and truth – inside and out!

Prayer: Father, plant Your mercy and truth deeply in our hearts, and let us live lives that honor You by reflecting those virtues. Amen!

    Remember how often Mom said “What’s on the inside will come out!” It’s amazing how much she and Dad used the wisdom in Proverbs to teach us lessons in life.
