Bread for the Journey

Do you suppose, O man – you who judge those who do such things and yet do them yourself – that you escape the judgement of God? Or do you presume on the riches of his kindness and forbearance and patience, not knowing that God’s kindness is meant to lead you to repentance? ~ Romans 2: 3,4

Isn't it amazing that God leads us to repentance with His kindness. Our God is good to us. It's good to be reminded to repent and to forgive. God forgives, we need to forgive and then move forward with joy.

  2. Happy are we to have such a God who has kindness towards us instead of revenge. I pity those who worship other such angry gods!
