Who is a God like you, who pardons sin and forgives the transgression of the remnant of his inheritance? You do not stay angry forever but delight to show mercy.
When you love someone, you can’t stay angry forever. At some point, forgiveness and mercy take anger’s place. It is mind-boggling to imagine the extent of God’s forgiveness and mercy. I may struggle with forgiving one or two people who have injured me in the past. God created everything and everyone, and every person alive and gone has sinned, and wronged God. God’s example of forgiveness and mercy is the ideal.
Holy Father, I am grateful for your mercy and continual love, despite my sins which must anger you, at least a little. I am sorry for my sins, for the times I have been hurtful to others. I will try to be quicker to forgive, more ready to show mercy, whenever I begin to feel angry. Amen
