Matthew 5:7

In this fifth beatitude Jesus says, "Blessed are the merciful for they will be shown mercy." These words raise numerous questions for us. Does Jesus mean that we merit mercy by being merciful? And why is mercy a mark of the kingdom? How does mercy related to the beatitudes that precede it? Listen to this message as these questions are faced and discover again the power of the gospel to transform lives, shaping us into the merciful.
