Ps 100:5

For the Lord is good; His mercy and loving-kindness are everlasting, His faithfulness and truth endure to all generations.

Do you know how it hurts to be misunderstood and wrongly perceived?

There are many people who live in this world with a mindset that gives room to the notion that God is a hard and tough task master who can never be pleased. They make it look as if there is no way one can please God or be accepted by God.

There is much truth in the reality that God is a judge and this means He is severe. But it is important for you to know that God is essentially good. His severity even reveals His goodness and not the other way round. Being good and being God means He has to judge wickedness in order that righteousness, justice and goodness may be eroded.

There is no doubt that God chooses mercy over justice. He is more lenient than any human being can possibly be. We as His children are to be like that. We are to live lives that glorify Him by being loving and merciful like our father in heaven.

Those who might see God’s grace and mercy as an occasion to continue to displease Him do this because they do not realize that God’s demands are because of our wellbeing and not because of anything He might gain. The more they live in sin, the more they harm themselves by corruption the substance of their spirits.

Prayer: dear heavenly father, I thank you for your goodness and love. I pray you fill me with this nature and a heart of compassion. I thank you for your faithfulness. In Jesus mighty name.
