God calls us children
The Lord is merciful and gracious; he is slow to anger, and great in mercy. – Psalm 103: 8
Many indigenous peoples represent their gods with severe and vindictive features, as that is their understanding of their attitude towards men.
After creating a wonderful world and crowning it with the creation of the human being to live and enjoy it, God receives ingratitude and disobedience in return. But the true God is unlike any other god. His love for man is infinite. His goodness is endless. He would have reason enough to despise us, punish us, and condemn us, but instead he loves us. Through his son Jesus, God forgives us our sins, adopts us as children, and offers salvation to all people.
PRAYER: Kind God and Father, we thank you because, by your great love, we can be part of your family. Thank you for having adopted us as your children. Teach us to live as brothers. Amen.
