Tuesday of Week 16 Year 2

Some people get the impression that God is like a policeman, just waiting to catch us and punish us for doing or committing the smallest sin. Others tend to think that God is an unforgiving God who keeps track of our sins. Some think that God is like a fierce and fiery volcano, always angry and ever ready to spout out lava and cause suffering to us. As Christians, what sort of God do we really have?

Today's reading gives us glimpses of the kind of God we have. The reading tells us that God:
  • Is a shepherd to all of us...
  • Removes guilt and pardons sin for the remnant of his inheritance;
  • Does not persist in anger forever but delights rather in clemency,
  • Have compassion on us, treading underfoot our guilt?
  • Cast into the depths of the sea all our sins;
  • Show faithfulness
Seeing that we have such a loving, caring and forgiving God, what about our attitudes and behaviour towards others? Are we just as loving, caring and forgiving to others like God is to us?
