Slow to Anger - A Different Perspective - February 20

Slow to Anger

by Berni Dymet

Psalm 86:15 But you, O Lord, are a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness.

Anyone who's been a dad knows what it's like when the kids don't do as they're told. It's so easy to fly off the handle - because the last things we need are the kids playing up, right?

And so - I kind of expected God to be like that to tell you the truth - ready to pounce on me the moment I put a foot wrong. Just waiting to jump on me. 

But … well, it wasn't what I expected. What I discovered is that God's a great Dad - He kind of gives me room to make mistakes - to learn from them - without jumping down my throat. In fact, the best way I've ever heard it described is that He's slow to anger. 

And His love's steadfast - rock solid. So when I've blundered and I get up and dust myself off - and go back to Him and say, Lord, dad - I got it wrong. What I discovered is this incredibly faithful God, rock solid despite my blunders.
