Today’s Joyce Meyer Daily Devotional January 21, 2018
Topic: Show Mercy to Your Enemies
Key Verse: “You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall love your neighbour (fellow man) and hate your enemy.’ But I say to you, love [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, – Matthew 5:43-44
Messages: I love the movie El Cid, the story of the man who united Spain and became a great hero.
For centuries the Christians had fought the Moors. They hated and killed each other. In battle, El Cid captured five Moors but refused to kill them because he realized that killing had never done any good. He believed that showing mercy to his enemies would change their hearts and then both groups could live in peace.
One of the Moors he captured said, “Anyone can kill, but only a true king can show mercy to his enemies.” Because of El Cid’s one act of kindness, his enemies offered themselves to him as friends and allies from that point on.
Jesus is a true King, and He is good, kind and merciful to all, even those who hate Him. Can we do any less than follow His example? Right now, can you think of anyone to whom you could show mercy? Being merciful and good, especially to your enemies, may be one of the most powerful things you have ever done.
Prayer: God, it’s not easy, but I want to be the kind of person who shows mercy to all, even my enemies. By Your grace, I choose now to live a life of mercy.
