God is sheer mercy and grace; slow to anger, He’s rich in love. Psalm 103-8
The phrase that touches me the most is “slow to anger.” I’ve got to say that I am not always slow to anger.
I think that so often we assume that God reacts the same way we do. When we sin and fail God, we are afraid that He will be furious. While I do believe that God’s heart breaks when we sin, I also know that He is merciful. If He says that He is slow to anger, He means it.
Father, Thank you that You do not react the way that I do. Thank You for Your abundant mercy, grace and love. In Jesus’ Name, Amen
