12/19/2012 Proverbs 3:3,4 Let not mercy and truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart:
:4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the sight of God and man.
The Lord tells us not to forsake mercy. We need to always be showing Mercy because God is always showing Mercy and if we are walking with Jesus and flowing in the fruit of the Holy Spirit we will be showing Mercy. Jesus taught us that if we forgive not then we would not be forgiven. People hold so much bitterness inside against other people. We know that Doctors have discovered that bitterness or unforgiveness brings on all kinds of sickness and even death. God gives us commandments for our own good and protection. God loves us so much.
We are also keep Truth. Jesus said I am the Way the Truth and the Life, no man cometh unto the Father but by me. Jesus is the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His Glory the Glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth. Jesus has given us the bible which records the words that Jesus spoke to His Disciples and now to us through the bible.
By keeping Mercy and Truth God tells us we will find favour which we all want, and we will find favour with God and man. Of course we want to find favour with God because we serve Him and Love Him with all our heart, but God gives us favour with man too. Now that's really a win win situation.
Father we pray to always be walking, living, in Mercy and Truth. We pray to only say and do what you say and do through us. Please help us to be quick to follow your leading. In Jesus name we pray.
