“But they deceived Him with their mouths, they lied to Him with their tongues, their hearts were insincere toward Him and they were unfaithful to His covenant. Yet He was compassionate, He atoned for their guilt and did not destroy them. He often turned His anger aside and did not unleash all His wrath. He remembered that they were only flesh, an wind that passes and does not return.”
Psalm 78:36-39 HCSB
The world tells us to cancel people out of our lives who have wronged us, but God takes a different direction with us when it is we who have wronged Him. Instead of a passive-aggressive approach or shutting down, He recognizes our humanity and offers a way of redemption.
Perhaps the next time someone hurts our feelings or steps out of their lane we can follow His example of compassion and remember they, like us, are only flesh. 🚦
