Devotional: God's Mercy
Children's Devotion on showing mercy to others
Read: Matthew 18:21-35 (NKJV)
This parable is an illustration of God's mercy and forgiveness towards us.
God has shown us all the greatest mercy ever known. He has wiped our debt clean when Christ died on the cross—though we didn't deserve it. So, when we come to Him and ask for forgiveness, He grants it to us—but He expects us to show the same mercy and forgiveness to others as well.
Is there a time you can think of when you could have shown mercy and forgiveness? Maybe you would like to pray this prayer with me:
Lord, I do thank you that you showed me mercy and forgave my sins. I'm sorry for the times when I haven't shown the same mercy or forgiveness to others. Please help me to be more forgiving. In Jesus' name.

So be merciful (sympathetic, tender, responsive, and compassionate) even as your Father is [all these]. - Luke 6:36 (AMPC)
