“You are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love.” (Jonah 4:2) - Daily Bible Reflections July 18,2014


GOD IS KIND
 
“I desire mercy, not sacrifice.” – Matthew 12:7
 
I remember Joseph the Dreamer who was sold by his brothers into slavery. When the time came when they needed his assistance, Joseph could have refused to help them. He had the right to do so, after all the pain they had caused him. But Joseph chose mercy and compassion instead. He forgave his brothers and did them good by providing for their needs.
       God treats us in the same way. We have sinned many times and yet He continues to forgive our sins when we come to Him in the sacrament of reconciliation.
       Some people may have done us wrong and we feel we have the right to take revenge. But the Lord asks us to choose love as it will please the Father. Our duty is to love them.
       Give mercy to the sister who caused us hurt by her painful words, mercy to the absentee father who had neglected us but needs our care in his old age, mercy to the man who caused us much heartache but needs healing through our forgiveness.
       The same mercy the Lord gives to us, He asks that we give to others. It is not easy, and this is why we need God’s grace to help us show mercy, to share His love. Marjorie Ann Duterte (marjorie.travels@gmail.com)
 
Reflection: “You are a gracious and compassionate God, slow to anger and abounding in love.” (Jonah 4:2)
 
Dear Jesus, help us to love like You do, to overlook offenses and keep no record of wrongs, that we may show our love for You.
 
Blessed Angeline of Marsciano, pray for us.
