A Refresher from the Past

Monday, April 11, 2011  ::  

I love where God is taking Second Mile right now... Blessed are the Merciful.  Last night Chad talked a little about human dignity.  It reminded me of a blog post I wrote in August of 2010.

I know you want to read it again so click here to re-read or read it for the first time.

My heart's desire is to stand shoulder to shoulder with any person at all no matter their ethnicity, social status, cleanliness, size, smell, looks, or religion and see them as a complete and total equal. But please know, it isn't for my benefit or the other person's benefit or to make either of us feel good about ourselves, but it is to show Jesus that I know he has offered me complete mercy, unending love, and the ability to stand in front of Him with full dignity.

Are you learning deep things about mercy? I would love to hear a little about it. Show me some mercy and post a comment.  ;)

2 important comments so far. What are your thoughts?

This makes my heart full hearing your desire to walk in love and in mercy. I'm learning that mercy is truly a posture of the heart, without the heart the actions are empty.

Heart it is my friend....All of our actions flow from the heart..God is revealing to me more and more about my innate ability to "withhold" from others and to justify my withholding in all sorts of creative , fleshly and ugly ways. Financial withholding is just the tip of the iceberg, BUT ... Where am withholding forgiveness, kindness, gentleness, time. Whom am I choosing to give the love of Jesus to, and who I am choosing to not give, show and BE the Love of Jesus... ? AND WHY? Lord Thank you for dying on the cross for MY sin and rising again so that I may TRULY LIVE...I praise and worship you Jesus!
