As a father shows compassion to his children,
so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear Him. (Psalm 103:13)
Our Lord shows us that He has compassion on His children but also to those who fear Him.
He is slow to anger showing that He harbours no ill will toward us. Because we are sinners He removes our transgressions from us through the love of His Son and His Willing Spirit.
The Lord treats all His people equally with His Spirit and His Love shows them that His Kingdom will last forever.
May You, gracious Lord, look over us with Your great love and compassion and forgive us, for we see that we are the sinners of this world. Lord we fear You and come to You as Your Children for forgiveness. Help those who do not fear You as Your Children to come to You in repentance so they need not fear anymore but call themselves Your Children too. Amen.
