This past Sunday I listened to an inspiring homily from our bishop and I really want to share my thoughts about it with you. The point of his homily was to encourage us to continue the year of Mercy in our daily lives even though this special year is coming to a close. He directed us to look at the visitation: Mary went to visit Elizabeth and reminds us of Jesus' call to visit the sick, the lonely, the imprisoned, and the forgotten. We need to continue showing mercy to those around us!
I came across this verse when looking for something that ties into Thanksgiving for this month's quote and I just love it! As this year of Mercy ends, we need to remember that God's Mercy endures forever and so we should also continue to walk in that Mercy and dish it out to everyone around us.
Give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
His mercy endures forever. Psalms 118:1
