His mercy endureth forever

O give thanks unto the LORD for he is good, for his mercy endureth for ever...

To him that made great lights:

The sun to rule by day

The moon and stars to rule by night

for his mercy endureth for ever.
Psalm 136

blessed are the merciful

Matthew 5:7

"Blessed are the merciful, for they will be shown mercy."

How do you interpret this verse in light of understanding the Gospel?

I feel like it's backwards and should say, "Because God has shown us mercy in Christ, blessed are we when we're merciful to one another"...

We're discussing this in our small group, what do you think?
