Keeping Sabbath


James 2:12-13

So speak and so act as those who are to be judged 

under the law of liberty.

For judgement is without mercy to one who has shown no mercy,

Mercy triumphs over judgement.

Mercy triumphs over judgement.

Every. Single. Time,


Even when I judge myself...and I think we are all our own worst critics.

God shows me mercy and shows me the way to grow.

Because, without mercy, there can be no growth.

Judgement is final.

God doesn't want us to stop growing and learning

and so he gives us mercy when we mess things up.

And he asks that we give mercy to our brothers and sisters as well.

and to ourselves.


  1. Mercy mercy mercy. This is what I pray when I need to show it and to be shown it the most.

  2. Yes! I certainly need to receive God's mercy and to let it flow through me to others.

  3. I'm so thankful for God's mercy - as I need it every single day!

  4. Beautiful, friend. May we be laden with mercy ... and willing to share it generously with everyone we come in contact with.

  5. Amen! Thanks for sharing your insights on God's mercy.

    Beautiful picture of the geranium. Such vibrant color!

  6. It has always puzzled me why people judge so harshly. I even did a blog post about it one time. Lovely red flowers. I always have to stop for red flowers and red birds. : )


  7. Such a gentle, thoughtful post with a fabulous message. Thank you for sharing!
