Prayer Devotional: Day 18

Be ye therefore merciful, as your Father also is merciful. – Luke 6:36 KJV

Being merciful includes showing mercy to ourselves. Sometimes we need to say “no” even if we think that answer might displease someone. The Lord knows that we do our best work when we are healthy, balanced, and well rested.

If we didn’t sleep well, it may take a day to make up the lost sleep. If we have a cold, it is okay to take time to recover.

Mercy and self care go hand in hand. The Lord can help us balance our priorities. Amen.
