Nature proclaims there is a God. We see the demonstration of his power and His creative genius in the universe. But when it comes to the qualities and characteristics of God, we can only know them through the revelation of His Word.
The past two weeks we have been reflecting on His attributes from A-Z. Today, let’s notice three more.
Kind. “Or do you despise the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience? Do you not realize that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance?” —Rom. 2:4, NRSV
Love. “For as the heavens are high above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him.” —Ps. 103:11, RSV
Merciful. “Let the wicked forsake his way, and the unrighteous man his thoughts; and let him return unto the Lord, and he will have mercy upon him; and to our God, for he will abundantly pardon.” —Isa. 55:7-8, KJV
May the kindness, love and mercy of God motivate us to demonstrate those same qualities to our fellow man.
—Ken Weliever. The Preacherman
