Hello to all who have been with me every Thursday, once again I will be talking about the beatitudes spoken by the Lord Jesus.
These are teachings that have power to transform the lives of those who put them into practice.
Are you one of those people who are living each of these weekly teachings?
I ask you because I want to know, if in fact, you have taken these articles seriously. It’s very simple: if you ‘re the kind of person who reads the articles and thinks they are interesting, but forgets to put them into practice then know that you have not been a good land to sow on because there is no evidence of fruits in your life.
Before speaking about the 5th beatitude I would like you to think very seriously about how you have used these teachings that are precious pearls for your spiritual growth and preserve your salvation.
“Blessed are the merciful, for they shall obtain mercy.” (Mt. 5:7)
If we read this verse in a superficial way, we can conclude that those who are “good” and do good will automatically receive the benefits of their actions. In fact, it is much more intense and profound than that. It is in no way linked to the feeling of pity and neither to the act of charity.
But, what does it mean to be merciful?
Remember that God in His infinite mercy gave His Son for the sake of humanity. Therefore we can define it as surrendering, as having forgiveness, compassion, giving a new opportunity. Let us highlight that this mercy is entirely linked to justice, in other words it does not tolerate sin. But for those who repent have the right to receive a second chance.
Who is a merciful Assistant?
– It is the one who gives her all for the people, the one who fights to save the lives of those who are lost;
– It is the one that sees a flaw in one of her companions of war and does not look at her with bad eyes, but forgives, and always reveals the truth;
– It is the one that does not point out other people’s mistakes, but rather teaches, encourages and if necessary guides the person to an unconditional surrender based on what is Just;
– It is the one who does not get tired of doing good even while facing life’s adversities.
Those people obtain mercy. How beautiful! Isn’t it?
Dear Assistants I would like to read your comments and know your thoughts on these beatitudes.
A big hug,
