"Mercy And Truth"
Write them on the tablet of your heart, Proverbs 3:3
I love this verse. I love it because its a verse that speaks an amazing promise to me. And it does that because it doesn't stand alone. What I me about that is this ... it's a comma. Not a period that ends a sentence and thus the thought, but a comma, which means what comes next in verse 4 brings so much more to the words that are being spoken. Check it out.
Let not mercy and truth forsake you; Bind them around your neck,
Write them on the tablet of your heart, And so find favor and high esteem in the sight of God and man.
See what I mean? Get a hold of His mercy and truth. Love it when it is at work in your life. Love it when you see it at work in the lives of others. Take a hold of His mercy, His truth and fill your heart with a love for His Word, His mercy, His truth and then watch as they go to work in every area of your life. Fill your heart with a love and appreciation for His mercy and His truth and what comes next ... ? According to this verse ... favor and high esteem in the sight of both God and man!
If you'll fill your heart with a love for His mercy and truth than what flows out of the abundance of your heart will be His mercy, His truth! Then comes 'favor and high esteem' with both God and those whose lives He touches through you.
