His mercies are new every morning.

Oh give thanks to the Lord, for He is good; his love endures forever!
Who can utter the mighty deeds of the Lord or declare all his praise?
But they soon forgot his works.
They forgot God, their Savior.
They mixed with the nations and learned to do as they did. They served their idols, which became a snare to them.
Thus they became unclean by their acts and played the whore in their deeds.
Nevertheless he looked upon their distress, when he heard their cry.
For their sake he remembered his covenant and relented according to the abundance of his steadfast love.
Blessed be the Lord, God of Israel, from everlasting to everlasting! And let all the people say “Amen!”
Praise the LORD!
Excerpts from Psalm 106

It’s his loving kindness that leads us to repentance, and his great grace and mercy that touches our hearts and bids us come and die. Do we exhibit this grace and mercy to others, inviting others in to know it’s source?

What about our lives demonstrates that we are any different than the world around us? Or have we become so tolerant and PC that we have adapted to and adopted the standards of our culture rather than the standards of our God? Truth in love, righteousness and mercy. He’s a God of both/and.
