God Shows Mercy To The Merciful
The Lord will show mercy, righteousness, and justice to those who exhibit good characteristics but to evildoers, He will judge harshly.
“With the merciful, You will show Yourself merciful; with a blameless man You will show Yourself blameless; with the pure, You will show Yourself pure; and with the devious, You will show Yourself shrewd.
Be humble, the Lord will save you. But He will bring down the haughty. You will save the humble people; but Your eyes are on the haughty, that You may bring them down. (2 Samuel 22:26-28)
