“A saint is not someone who is good but who experiences the goodness of God.” – Brennan Manning
Listen to my song “Give Praise and Thanks” on YouTube by clicking HERE.
Praise the LORD, for he is good; for his mercy endures forever.
Just reading today’s scripture verse brings me peace.
Read it again and slowly savor it.
God, the Source of all, is good.
God is not a tyrant.
God is not cruel.
Jesus showed us the face of God.
He said if you knew him, then you will also know God (John 14:7).
Did you ever see Jesus smite anyone?
The only people Jesus vehemently criticized were the Pharisees when they were self-righteous and lacking in compassion.
In this earthly realm, there are troubles.
Bad things do happen to good people.
It’s in these times when compassion is most needed.
It seems as though it’s the only way compassion can be enacted in us.
When we encounter someone in desperate need, something happens inside us.
Something deep within awakens to the pain of the other.
It draws us into this pain so that we can share the burden and lighten the load.
This is the mercy of God that nothing can defeat, not even death.
