Blessed is he who has regard for the weak; the LORD delivers him in times of trouble. (Psalm 41:1)
Great promise for "he/she who has regard for the weak"
In Psalm 41, David speaks of 5 great promises for/blessings that come upon them who have mercy on the weak (NIV) / poor (KJV).
1.The LORD delivers him in times of trouble.
2.The LORD will protect him and preserve his life.
3.The LORD will bless him in the land.
4.The LORD will not surrender him to the desire of his foes.
5.The LORD will sustain him on his sickbed and restore him from his bed of illness.
God desires his children to be merciful. That's why Jesus said,
Blessed are the merciful: for they shall obtain mercy. (Matthew 5:7)
Jesus once rebuked the teachers of the law and Pharisees for the duplicity regarding their faith. He said,
"Woe to you, teachers of the law and Pharisees, you hypocrites! You give a tenth of your spices - mint, dill and cummin. But you have neglected the more important matters of the law - justice, mercy and faithfulness. You should have practiced the latter, without neglecting the former. (Matthew 23:23)
Justice, mercy and faithfulness are important in the God's sight. A judgemental attitude often spoils our relationship with people and with God.
Jesus was merciful to the weak and poor. So should we be. The promises that are outlined above comes true in the life of them that show mercy.
May the Holy Spirit of God help all of us to be merciful as Jesus was. That would bring us great blessings. Praise the Lord.
