“The Lord is merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and plenteous in mercy” (Psalm 103:7 in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).
There are many who view God as someone who is watching their every move waiting for an opportunity to pass judgment on them. While it is true that our unjust actions, apart from God’s mercy, will bring the penalty of sin upon our lives, this Scripture emphasizes the great patience of God towards us.
Prayer: Jesus, I praise you for your endless love and compassion. Forgive me for my thoughtlessness and the many times I have overlooked your tender mercies. Help me to think before I act, to be more careful about the way I handle Your mercy. Thank You for being patient with me. Amen.
