Infinite Mercy

Baruch 1:21-22

For we did not heed the voice of the Lord, our God, in all the words of the prophets whom he sent us, but each of us went off after the devices of our own wicked hearts, served other gods, and did evil in the sight of the Lord, our God.

Centuries after this was written…not much has changed! We must admit that this scripture still applies to us today. But ever notice how God’s love is not conditional like ours is many times? God kept loving…keeps loving…despite being rejected over and over and over. If you are struggling and are not proud of some of the things you’ve done…take comfort in the fact that God is not giving up on you. God made us with a free will…knowing that we would make mistakes. Is that so we could then be punished for making those inevitable errors? Or…is it so we could be transformed by experiencing unconditional love, mercy, forgiveness and compassion? That would seem to be the only way we could learn to love, to be merciful, to forgive and to have compassion. God is not looking to punish you…but to love you. Whatever your “shadow side” might be…it will likely be the key ingredient in your transformation. So…bring your brokenness, shame, and pain to God…and experience what Unconditional Love is!

    Awoke this morning with an urge to write about mercy, read your post, and found inspiration for mine. Take a look. I put in a link to your post for today.
    Thanks for the inspiration. ~Dennis
