Jude 1:2 (NKJV) Mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.
There are all sorts of things multiplying today that we could do without. Immorality, violence, cheats, thieves, corruption, heartache, sickness… seems like there is multiplied bad news, bad times and bad stuff. Signs of the times…
Aaaaah… [insert long relaxing deep sigh here]… what a joy to be a Christian and be sure that no matter what life throws our way, God also has plenty of mercy, peace and love just for you, must for me… multiplied exponentially. Sadly, those who ignore God reject this blessing and miss out; but for those of us who acknowledge our Creator and give Him rightful place in our life, we have “mercy, peace and love MULTIPLIED”.
Think It Over: As a Christian you should live transcendently (above circumstances). You should live with an eternal perspective (eyes on the Heavenly prize). We don’t get to check out and skip the hardships of life but unlike the lost world, every circumstance has a purpose, answer and blessing.
