For You, O Lord, are good, and ready to forgive [our sins, sending them away, completely letting them go forever and ever]; and abundant in lovingkindness and overflowing in mercy to all those who call upon You.
— Psalm 86:5 (AMP)
In our relationships with our parents or others, we may have had to perform in a certain way in order to earn their love, but God’s love is not like that. His love is freely offered to all who receive it by faith.
Though God does get angry at sin, wickedness, and evil, He is not an angry God. God hates sin, but He loves sinners! He is “good, and ready to forgive.” He is abundant in mercy and filled with loving-kindness.
God will never give up on us, and He will continue to work with us toward positive change in our lives. God never stops loving us for even one second. He meets us right where we are and helps us get to where we need to be.
Prayer of the Day: Lord, thank You for Your great love for me and for not abandoning me alone and lost in my sin. Thank You for Your unconditional love and please help me to show Your love to others, amen.
