It is not often that you find a compassionate ruler. Being compassionate can be seen as a sign of weakness, yet in this case, it reveals the great strength of God. When it is well within God's power to be vengeful or harsh, he shows his great love for humanity in his mercy.
It saddens me when I hear of people speaking of God only as an angry God or as someone who delights in putting people in their place. Do these words sound like someone who is angry?
"As a father has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on his children, so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him." - Psalm 103:13
Just as our Lord is compassionate, let us show compassion to those who need it.
Living in Grace
