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.

Micah 7:18

If there is one quality of God’s love that sets him apart, over and over in Scripture, it’s his mercy. He is not permissive, allowing anything and everything, but he is forgiving, not holding grudges or manipulating his people with guilt.

We should imitate that quality! Where can we let go of past wrongs? Who is in need of our mercy? We should show them who our God is by demonstrating this crucial part of his character.
