Jesus said, “Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.” (Matthew 5:7). Perhaps the merciful are shown mercy because there are no more wonderful gifts for sinners to receive.
Mercy is its own reward.
The poor in spirit will receive the kingdom of heaven.
The mourners will receive comfort.
The meek will inherit the earth.
They that hunger and thirst after righteousness will be filled.
What do the merciful get?
