A super-bright moon led me to contemplate the blend of power and compassion as twin aspects of the nature of God. What difference does it make to our devotional times that God has such power and such compassion?
“..what is mankind that you are mindful of them, human beings that you care for them?” (Psalm 8:4 NIV11)
“The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9 NIV11)
“it will be more bearable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment than for you.” (Luke 10:14 NIV11)
Let me share with you what I learned while musing on these ideas today.
