New Mercy Every Day



Being a parent, I don't always respond to my child in the right way. Truthfully, I hardly ever respond the right way. I get worn down by the same ol' complaints and mistakes. Frustration creeps into my tone, along with sarcasm and bitterness. Yet, as I was throwing another quick, Lord, I need another helping of wisdom in dealing with the child YOU gave me, prayer into the air, this verse smacked me between the eyes.

The Bible tells us we are the child and God is the Father. Is He listening and responding to me the same way I listen and respond to my child?

No. He's not.

The Lord never barks at us for the same mistakes. Never rolls His eyes over our stumbles. Never tells us with that sigh of impatience, "If you had learned this the first time," "If you had listened when I was speaking..."

Zephaniah says, "He will be quiet in His love," and Lamentations says His lovingkindnesses and compassions are new every morning. His love, mercy and grace over us is new with every rise of the sun.

He treats us and our struggles with a renewed patience, as if our issues were brand new. I don't treat my child, or anyone, for that matter with that kind of grace. Which means I'm not loving people the same way Jesus loves me.

If every sunrise brings renewed love and compassion from Him, it should show in me.

"Be kind to one another, tender-hearted, forgiving each other, just as God in Christ also has forgiven you." ~Ephesians 4:32
