Luke 6:36–38

Jesus said to the disciples, “Be merciful, just as your Father is merciful. Do not judge, and you will not be judged; do not condemn, and you will not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven; give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together, running over, will be put into your lap; for the measure you give will be the measure you get back.”

• Can I tell Jesus in my prayer how hard is it for me to be merciful, not to judge, not to condemn and to forgive?

• Have I experienced the mercy of our Father? What keeps me apart from enjoying His mercifulness?
