I Know My Sheep

John 7-10 | April 24-30

Jesus taught us not to judge people based on their outward appearance. He showed mercy to those who had sinned, those who were sick, and those who were blind or lame. When we treat each other with love and kindness, even if someone may not deserve it, we are showing mercy. For example, if someone is unkind to you, you can be merciful to them and continue being kind anyway. If someone makes a mistake (we all make mistakes!) we can continue to show love and forgiveness.

Every blessing we receive from our Heavenly Father is an act of mercy. A few of the merciful gifts we receive from Heavenly Father are: answers to our prayers, guidance and comfort from the Holy Ghost and being healed through the power of the priesthood.

By showing mercy to those around us, we can find opportunities to share the gospel. We can teach others about the goodness and mercy of our Savior, the Good Shepherd, Jesus Christ. We can help Him gather His “lost sheep”.

“The infinite mercy of God cancels any punishment if the person repents, asks for forgiveness, and promises to follow Christ. God’s mercy comes from his unlimited and unconditional love for us. Likewise, we should show mercy to others…” Robert E. Wells
