In Matthew 5:7, it says we will get mercy if we show mercy. Mercy is a love and forgiveness shown to another person. In Micah 6:8, it says to love mercy, to do justly and to walk humbly with God. In Matthew 7:12, it says do unto others as you would have others to do to you. In Mark 12:31, it says to love your neighbor as yourself. I guess you could call this a chain of events. If you do the first, then the second and the third and fourth, you would be in a place to recieve mercy. We all need mercy. We are human and will fall and sin against God. But if we love mercy and show it to everyone, guess what will happen to us? We will receive mercy from God. In Matthew 5:7, it says blessed are the merciful for they shall receive mercy.
