Have you experienced the compassion of God? Do you NEED to experience His loving compassion?
He is compassionate. Slow to anger and abounding in grace. And because he is, especially once we have experienced God as El Rachum, we then will find it normal to show compassion to others. Not always easy but the norm.
Exodus 33:19 And the LORD said, “I will cause all my goodness to pass in front of you, and I will proclaim my name, the LORD, in your presence. I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.
Isaiah 54:10 For the mountains may depart and the hills be removed, but my steadfast love shall not depart from you, and my covenant of peace shall not be removed,” says the LORD, who has compassion on you.
