The Merciful (Part 2)

The Beatitudes
The BeatitudesSteve Gregg

In this segment, Steve Gregg discusses the biblical principle of showing mercy to others in order to obtain mercy oneself. He argues that forgiveness should be given without strings attached and that a new heart is required to truly exhibit mercy. Gregg emphasizes the reciprocal principle of God's wrath upon the wicked and the importance of seeking to restore relationships. He also cautions against picking and choosing verses to justify one's actions and encourages a constant disposition of sacrificial love.
