Between now and when you get to heaven, you’re going to make a lot of mistakes. You will need God’s mercy, but you cannot receive what you are unwilling to give. How have you seen God bless you when you’ve shown mercy to others? God wants you to pass on the mercy that you’ve received from Him.
This book of the law shall not depart from your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do according to all that is written in it; for then you will make your way prosperous, and then you will have success.Joshua 1.8
For if you forgive others for their transgressions, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you do not forgive others, then your Father will not forgive your transgressions.Matthew 6.14-15
