Deuteronomy 4:31 (for the Lord your God is a merciful God), He will not forsake you nor destroy you, nor forget the covenant of your fathers which He swore to them.
Even when we fail God, He does not fail us. He knows our frailty and has mercy when we come to Him seeking forgiveness and wanting to change our ways.
Mercy never holds grudges or seeks revenge, but it wants the best for forgiven sinners.
So our merciful Lord calls us to make changes that show we appreciate what he has done for us.
Is some appreciation called for in your life?
