Most Wonderfully Kind

Comfort, O comfort my people, says your God.
Isaiah 40:1
There’s a wideness in God’s mercy
like the wideness of the sea;
there’s a kindness in his justice,
which is more than liberty.

There is welcome for the sinner
and more graces for the good;
there is mercy with the Savior;
there is healing in his blood.

For the love of God is broader
than the measure of our mind;
and the heart of the Eternal
is most wonderfully kind.

But we make his love too narrow
by false limits of our own;
and we magnify his strictness
with a zeal he will not own.

When the crowds found out about it, they followed him; and he welcomed them, and spoke to them about the kingdom of God, and healed those who needed to be cured.
 Luke 9:11
Prayer after thinking about today's devotion:
Heal me, hands of Jesus, and search out all my pain; 
restore my hope, remove my fear and bring me peace again.

After your own thanksgivings & petitions, close with the Lord's Prayer.
