A God Full of Compassion

David spoke of violent men, who were after him, then he said,
But You, O Lord, are a God full of compassion, and gracious,
Longsuffering and abundant in mercy and truth.
(Psalm 86:15)
People can treat us horribly, but God stands ready to help us, ready with an abundance of compassion, grace, patience, mercy, and truth.
We have to make sure that we are imitating God and not the bad men of whom David spoke. Every person on earth can probably say that other people have treated him badly. We think that we are victims and not the bad guys. Have you treated others horribly? Do not answer that swiftly. Whatever kind of person you have been, work towards being like God as David revealed.
