Matthew 5:7

Matthew 5:7 KJV Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy.
 
If we want to be happy God’s way, then we must be merciful to others. Too often, we have expectations of how people around us should act and treat us. When those expectations are not met, we become disappointed, frustrated, and even angry. We fail to realize that we are sinners in need of mercy and forgiveness. When we are merciful, we understand the fact that each of are prone to sin and failure. When we are merciful, we do not place expectations on people that will lead to frustration. If we are merciful to others, we can expect mercy from God. God knows our true nature as sinful human beings. He is merciful towards us, we should treat others in the same manner.
