The Lord has mercy on those who respect him, as a father has mercy on his children.
We’ve all benefited from the kindness and compassion of a loving Father. A Father who is always there for you when it matters, no matter how resistant you are. A Father who wants to protect you from yourself and others. A Father who’s there to support you when you’re at your lowest.
It’s like D.L. Moody once said: “His is a loving, tender hand, full of sympathy and compassion.”
So live a life of respect and devotion for the ultimate giver of life and you will be rewarded with His grace and mercy.
