Gods encouraging word of the day

“The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy. The Lord is good to all, and His tender mercies are over all His works.”

Psalm 145:8-9

In the Bible, the virtues of mercy and compassion are mentioned in various forms hundreds of times, especially in describing God’s nature.

Instead of giving us what we deserve, God has shown mercy again and again, not to take away our responsibility, but to give us a chance to repent and be saved. We can ask ourselves: What have we done with that opportunity?

As undeserving recipients of God’s mercy it’s only right that we ourselves show unreserved mercy and compassion for other people.

Indeed, we are commanded to be merciful as God is merciful! The Bible even speaks about compassion and care for animals.

Compassion is to share the pain and suffering of others, and actively working to help them. Our greatest example in this is Jesus Himself, who took upon Himself human nature, giving His life to open a way of eternal salvation for us.

God Bless You
