Mercy.

Late Sunday night I listened in to my church's morning service. Since February is missions month at LVBC, the assistant pastor was preaching on the origin of missions. The message was terrific, but one verse caught my attention that was only briefly mentioned by the pastor.


"Who is a God like unto thee, that pardoneth iniquity, and passeth by the transgression of the remnant of his heritage? he retaineth not his anger for ever, because he delighteth in mercy."

~ Micah 7:18~



I've been thinking of that last part of the verse all day - God delights in mercy.


I think I'll leave ya'll with that today...



"... he delighteth in mercy."

Good thought, Anne. I'm glad you brought that up, and I've been thinking about it since I saw it on your blog.
