Day 15: The Love Of Mercy


BLOOM LOVE~

"LOVE [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies,

 [make it a practice to] do good to those who hate you,

 bless and show kindness to those who curse you, pray for those who mistreat you.  Whoever strikes you on the cheek,

 offer him the other one also [simply ignore insignificant insults or losses and do not bother to retaliate—maintain your dignity].

 Whoever takes away your coat,

 do not withhold your shirt from him either.

Give to everyone who asks of you.

Whoever takes away what is yours, do not demand it back.

 Treat others the same way you want them to treat you"*

BLOOM LOVE~

 "But love [that is, unselfishly seek the best or higher good for] your enemies,

and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return;

for your reward will be great (rich, abundant),

and you will be sons of the MOST HIGH;

because HE HIMSELF is kind and gracious and good to the ungrateful and the wicked.

 Be merciful (responsive, compassionate, tender)

just as your [heavenly] FATHER is merciful"*

BLOOM LOVE.~

"Do not judge [others self-righteously],

 and you will not be judged;

Do not condemn [others when you are guilty and unrepentant],

and you will not be condemned [for your hypocrisy];

Pardon [others when they truly repent and change],

and you will be pardoned [when you truly repent and change]"

*(Luke 6:27-31, 35-37, AMP)..

BLOOM LOVE~

 "Love is to be sincere and active [the real thing—without guile and hypocrisy].

 Hate what is evil [detest all ungodliness, do not tolerate wickedness];

 hold on tightly to what is good.

 Be devoted to one another with [authentic]

brotherly affection [as members of one family], give preference to one another in honor;  never lagging behind in diligence; aglow in the SPIRIT

 enthusiastically serving the LORD;

 constantly rejoicing in hope [because of our confidence in CHRIST],

 steadfast and patient in distress,

 devoted to prayer [continually seeking wisdom, guidance, and strength],

 contributing to the needs of GOD'S people, pursuing [the practice of] hospitality.

Bless those who persecute you

[who cause you harm or hardship]; bless and do not curse [them]"

(Romans 12:9-14).

Why BLOOM LOVE?

Because JESUS BLOOMED it first.

"We love because HE first loved us"

(I John 4:19).

HIS BLOOMING LOVE~

FATHER, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing”

(Luke 23:24)

Why?
