What are you known for? When people think of you, how would they describe you? Jesus’ descriptions of the citizens of God’s kingdom include these three characteristics: being merciful, pure in heart, and working for peace. These characteristics describe Jesus, our leader. He wants them to describe us in our relationships with others. Is this how you are known?

Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy. Blessed are the pure in heart, for   they will see God. Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God. —Matthew 5:7-9

Prayer: Jesus, I am grateful for being on the receiving end of Your mercy, Your pure and trustworthy heart, and Your making peace for those of us who were at odds with God and with one another. Transform me so that I look more and more like You. Let me follow in Your footsteps today. In Your name I pray, amen.
