Exo 34:6 and Mark 3:35 "Self Swindlers" (February 21)
Exodus 34:6 God says that He is merciful when people here don't cut us any slack; He is slow to anger even when people tell us what's wrong with us; He is Gracious when others are curt, short, and unkind; He is steadfast in His Love when our friends swindle us; He is faithful when we become self swindlers. The Lord made sure that Moses knew that. Passed before Moses and Proclaimed! And Jesus made sure that His followers knew in Mark 3:35 that whoever does the will of God, you have a relationship with the Holy One. Holiness---is that what grasps me this day? Or is it about proving that I am right; vindicating myself; standing up for myself. Oh God, have mercy on us all. Holiness is the cry of our heart. May I be more concerned about how I treat others than how they treat me.
