INTRODUCTION

There were two black brothers who were slaves and they were treated by their master with contempt. They were given very ROUGH WORKING CLOTHES. The younger brother because of his sensitive skin would develop rashes and even wounds. The older brother upon noticing this on his brother would wear the working clothes until they became OLD, WORN-OUT and of course SOFT. When the clothes became soft already by constant wearing, the older brother would give the clothes to his younger brother who would no longer develop rashes or skin lesions.

That’s how I see mercy: When somebody is in a miserable condition, MERCY comes to the rescue just like a big brother. Today, we will be expounding on the subject matter of mercy and there are two clear points to this verse:

I. THE HAPPINESS OF THE MERCIFUL

(a) THE TEMPERAMENT THEN AND NOW

(b) THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN MERCY AND OTHER BEATITUDES

(c) DEFINITION and DESCRIPTION What it is? What it is not?

(d) THE PERFECT PICTURE OF MERCY – CHRIST

(e) MERCY’S MEASURING STICK

II. THE REWARD OF THE MERCIFUL

CONCLUSION

Pr 11:17 The merciful man does himself good, But the cruel man does himself harm.

May you be a big brother to somebody in misery.
