Personal Study/Journey 3

Exodus 34:6b ... "The LORD, the LORD GOD, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth (faithfulness).
Vs 7 Who keeps lovingkindness for the thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations."

We've had this scripture before in my November 26th post. We talked about how God wants to reveal Himself to us. This is a good verse for not just teaching about God's nature and character. It is also good to meditate on for two reasons.
1.) We see God's goodness toward those who turn to Him.
2.) He assures us that He IS just and will call into account the unrepentant someday.

I like meditating on His compassion, graciousness, patience, lovingkindness, and faithfulness.
Living in a world dominated by people who are harsh, impatient, abusive, hateful, and faithless, it is good to know that God is there for me to draw near to, for me to love, and rely on.
