showing love...

January 26, 2012

Psalm 103: 7 He will not always chide. Nor will he keep his anger forever

Chide is defined as “to express disapproval of; scold; reproach.” I am certainly more deserving of reproach from God on a constant daily basis. Yet, that’s not how God works; instead, He builds up and He teaches. He wants us to learn how to attack our daily struggles without turning to sin. Although He never sacrifices His holiness for anything; He also never desires to beat in our heads again and again over our sin. I wonder if we offer others in our lives the same degree of love as God shows us. For it is God’s love that is shown when He doesn’t rain down His anger, which is justified, on those who deserve it; instead, He shows us His love, and forbearance.
