The LORD is…

There's a beautiful description of God in the Old Testament to which I intentionally return as often as I can remind myself. It appears seven times. Once in the Law, once in Writings, three times in the Psalms and twice in the Prophets.

The LORD is gracious and compassionate
     Slow to anger
         And abounding in steadfast love (hesed)

  • Neh. 9:17
  • Ps. 86:15
  • Ps. 103:8
  • Ps. 145:8
  • Joel 2:13
  • Jonah 4:2
