God’s compassion is such great news for us. How burdensome would life be if God responded with anger at every mistake? We’d be paralyzed, afraid to do anything for fear of messing up. But God answers our sins, our failures, and our shortcomings with mercy. By His grace, He gently restores us and corrects our course, Amen.
And we pray:
Precious Lord, thank You for Your great mercy. I rely on it every day. I am grateful that You hold back Your anger, even when I fail. It is with humility and awe that I receive the mercy of Your forgiveness. Thank You for the correction that You provide to me each day. In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
