A Word To The Wise

The merciful man does good for his own soul, But he who is cruel troubles his own flesh (Proverbs 11:17, NKJV). The very foundation of good is found in Him from whom all good flows. He who is merciful follows the pattern of the Father (Ephesians 5:1), and one who follows the pattern of the Father can’t help but affect his soul in a way that is beyond measurement by anything in this world. On the other hand, one who has a heart that is suspicious, bitter, cruel can’t do anything but destroy himself. RT
