Merciful, and Pure in Heart

Mercy gives undeserved forgivess, exactly as God offers us. Jesus showed mercy to those he healed; God offers mercy to all through the death and resurrection of his Son. So too, this is to be the orientation, the pattern, for all who follow Jesus: we are merciful to others. We are also to be pure in heart. In this context "heart" means the seat of all thinking and acting. These days we would say integirty, meaning both morally upright, and unified and consistent. To be people of integrity, we have help both from God, and from our community of believers. [ Organ/Choir - Epiphany 6 ]
