Then he added, “Now go and learn the meaning of this Scripture: ‘I want you to show mercy, not offer sacrifices.’ For I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.” Mat 9:13. One is about relationship and the other religion, or one is about the heart and the other habit. If you are religious you will most likely be judgemental and self righteous, observing religious practices without demonstrating love towards others. But if you have a relationship with Jesus in your heart, you will sense His heart towards others and desire to reveal God’s love in the way you respond and treat them with grace, mercy and compassion. Love others as God loves you and you will always know God’s joy in your life. Praise God today that as we reach out to others with the love that He has shown us, and not in judgement, we will walk as Jesus.
