“The Lord is like a father to his children, tender and compassionate to those who fear him. For he knows how weak we are; he remembers we are only dust.”
We truly are fragile, but God’s care is eternal. Too often we only focus on God as a Judge and Lawgiver, and we tend to ignore His compassion and the concern He has for each of us. When God goes to examine our lives, He remembers our human condition. Our weakness then, should never be used to justify sin. His mercy takes everything into account. God will deal with us compassionately. We just need to trust Him.
