I was listening to the radio today, Praise 106.5, and heard a beautiful song. It is called "Motion Of Mercy," by Francesca Battistelli.
What it boils down to, is that the Motion of Mercy is a giving cycle. Someone does something for you, and you SHOULD want to do something in return. Now we all aren't capable of doing big things. Want to know a secret??? And do me a favor too, pass it along! LITTLE THINGS MATTER just as much as big things!
Love is a verb, an action word!
Some things you might think of ...
to pray for a friend
to feed the hungry
to give drink to the thirsty
to Truly listen to person or people asking for help, before answering
to shelter/clothe/give to the homeless
to visit the sick
to visit those in prison
to start a "pay it forward" chain...
to send a card to a friend to tell them you care
Obviously those are just a few examples. There are so many ways. The picture above, to the right, says, "Love is a Verb!" I love it! We need to stop feeling bad for people and start doing what we can to make a difference! Loving them the best we can!
I urge you to comment about a time mercy has been shown to you, a time you have shown mercy, or maybe even if you have a suggestion on ways that you can show love or mercy to someone! Yes, it will work for everyone, I FIXED IT :o) I included the lyrics to the song. I am sure you can also find in on YouTube.
I was poor I was weak I was the definition of a spiritually Bankrupt condition So in need of help I was unsatisfied Hungry and thirsty When You rushed to my side So unworthy Still You gave yourself away
That's the motion of mercy Changing the way and the why we are That's the motion of mercy Moving my heart
Now I'm filled by a love That calls me to action I was empty before Now I'm drawn to compassion And to give myself away
Living for the lost - Loving 'til it hurts No matter what the cost - Like You loved me first That's the motion of mercy God give me strength to give something from nothing I wanna be a glimpse of the Kingdom that's coming... Soon
Living for the lost - Loving 'til it hurts No matter what the cost - Like You loved me first That's the motion of mercy - Moving my heart To give yourself away - To give it all away That's the motion of mercy
