“The Lord passed by before him and proclaimed: ‘The Lord, the Lord, the compassionate and gracious God, slow to anger, and abounding in loyal love and faithfulness, keeping loyal love for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin. But he by no means leaves the guilty unpunished, responding to the transgression of fathers by dealing with children and children’s children, to the third and fourth generation.’”
The Lord showed compassion by giving the Ten Commandments a second time to Moses. He is both loving and just. He carries forward his purpose, even in the midst of human rebellion.
In both Testaments, God is the same. He seeks fellowship with us. He desires to show his love. What are you doing to allow him to do that?
