Jesus, always merciful and gracious, doesn’t give us what we deserve.
He was a pastor and quite angry at one of his parishioners.
A friend said, he should give that man over to the Lord. I would, the pastor said, but I’m afraid the Lord won’t be as hard on him as he deserves.
Well, yeah, it’s true, that God is never as hard on his family as we deserve. Aren’t you glad? I’ve learned to rarely ask for justice because I might get it.
Justice means that I get what I deserve. Mostly, I pray for mercy and grace and Jesus is always merciful and gracious. If he’s not, I don’t have a prayer. You don’t either.
I’m Steve Brown. You think about that.
