View of God
THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
“You are a forgiving God, gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in love.” (Nehemiah 9:17)
Unless we have a cosmic view of God and his purposes, He can appear confusing and unreachable. The Scriptures have so many metaphors, its sometimes difficult to keep the picture clear.
For example; shouldn’t “evil-doers” be exempt from God’s blessings? Yet, it seems that behavior doesn’t make any difference with God. He gives blessings to good and bad alike. Even the prophet Jeremiah at times questioned God’s fairness.
