Jude 1:2

May mercy, peace, and love be multiplied to you.
(ESV)
 First, remember that this letter is addressed to you.  Therefore, this statement is for you today.  These three things God desires that they be multiplied to you.

I would also like you to consider whether or not you desire these things to be multiplied to others, specifically to those who you encounter.  Do you desire Mercy, Peace, and Love to be multiplied to your family?  What about to your neighbors?  How about to the people you work with?  What about that one specific guy that you work with that is really annoying, and most of the time you just want to get away from that guy, and maybe it would be a joy to you that he might get fired... Do you desire Mercy, Peace, and Love for that guy?

Have you ever stopped and considered that you are to be the embodiment of Mercy, Peace, and Love to the people that you encounter.  People who are lost cannot have these things multiplied to them, except through you.
