Almighty God to dust…a great disparity of power and position, huh?!
What words: 2, 3, 4 or more, would You choose to describe Yourself??…would You choose to emphasize Your power?? or Your position?? or something else?? (perhaps? You would use words that express what You truly value about Yourself… or perhaps? You would avoid certain words that would give a false impression…Perhaps? Your specific word(s) choice would help explain who or what You “truly” are at heart… the authentic “real” You!)
Don’t most of us… want to be understood or appreciated…(whether we have power, position or not)?!
On one occasion, God revealed himself to Moses by declaring His own name and qualities. The first ones that he listed were mercy and compassion. (Exodus 24:5-7) Verse 6 “Jehovah was passing before him and declaring: “Jehovah, Jehovah, a God merciful and compassionate, slow to anger and abundant in loyal love and truth, “
Jehovah could have stressed his power or his wisdom. Yet, to Moses, who was seeking reassurance of God’s backing, Jehovah emphasized instead qualities that underscore his willingness to help his servants. (Ex. 33:13) Do you not find it heartwarming that God mentioned these endearing traits ahead of any others? [excerpted: w 2017 Imitate Jehovah’s Compassion]
