For as the heavens are high above the earth, So great is His mercy toward those who fear Him;
As far as east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us.
As a father pities his children, So the LORD pitied those who fear Him.
For He knows our frame; He remembers that we are dust.
Freely, God blesses us with His mercy, forgiveness, and love; and freely we receive these blessings. However humbled we may be, we greatly accept these gifts.
But how willingly do we pass these blessings on to our neighbours? How often do we share the joy that comes from knowing God?
God’s blessings defies logic and mathematical sense, because when you share His gifts of love – kindness – mercy – forgiveness, they do not halve what you have received, they increase. In this sense, sharing increases the gift.
God’s love knows no bounds and is not limited by our worldly agendas and worries. His love is eternal and infinite, so don’t think that by sharing what He has gifted you, means that you will run out.
So it is then wise to freely forgive, freely love, freely show kindness, and freely display mercy, for the richness multiplies and freely it is given to us.
“For as high as the heavens above, great is the measure of our Father’s love!”
