Matt 5:8 'Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy.'
Being merciful doesn’t mean performing occasional and isolated acts of compassion. We should be habitually merciful. We are merciful when we show compassion for the miserable or wretched, who are in need of material or spiritual assistance - or perhaps forgiveness.
Matt 5:8 'Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God.'
Have you noticed how some people can see something dirty in almost every situation? The impure can see something dirty in everything, while the pure in heart look for goodness and purity in everything around them.
