A bit of fun

Don't judge, be merciful as God is merciful towards us.

Recently I have felt really upset by being attacked by another Christian who decided that my beliefs were contrary to God's word. The person who attacked me does not know me nor of my journey with God. This is where I find social media an unpleasant place to be at times. 

I find it sad that Christians feel the need to convert other Christians especially on sites that are for Christians. 

This incident has troubled me and I found it hard to find peace from their words. 

Then when reading a trusted pastors comment on another site I realized that as Christians we above all must adhere to the words:

"Blessed are the merciful for they shall obtain mercy." 

It is so important whether we know a person or not to be merciful towards them because God is merciful towards us. 

At last I found my peace. I have prayed for this person, who feels the need to tell me that I am not saved and offer the words, "be merciful towards me because God is merciful towards you."
