God is Compassionate, Gracious … Attributes of God – Day 10 – In these verses from Exodus 34:5-7, we will find a lot of attributes of God in this challenge of the 31 Days of the Attributes of God.
5 The Lord descended in the cloud and stood there with him as he called upon the name of the Lord. 6 Then the Lord passed by in front of him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth; 7 who keeps lovingkindness for thousands, who forgives iniquity, transgression and sin; yet He will by no means leave the guilty unpunished, visiting the iniquity of fathers on the children and on the grandchildren to the third and fourth generations.”Exodus 34:5-7 New American Standard Bible (NASB)
First we see God is compassionate. I think of love and hugs. He cares for us. He is also gracious. He shows us grace. Then the list goes on with other attributes …
- Slow to Anger
God loves and cares for us and He also is just. He won’t let sin go unpunished, as we talked about in a previous days challenge. We also know that God can be trusted. He will keep His word.
