Compassion and forgiveness

March 17, 2014 6:46 pm

“We have sinned, been wicked and done evil;

we have rebelled and departed from your commandments and your laws. We have not obeyed your servants the prophets… O LORD, we are shamefaced, like our kings, our princes, and our fathers, for having sinned against you.

But yours, O Lord, our God, are compassion and forgiveness!” (Dan 9:5-6. 8-9).

A long list of our sins. We have … and … and … . A long list. And always only one reaction for that: compassion and forgiveness. Always. No matter how big my sin is. His love is always bigger. No matter how far I have escaped from Him, He’s always looking for me.

“Be merciful, as your Father is merciful, says the Lord” (Lk 6:36)
