God’s Heart

For I take no pleasure in the death of anyone, declares the Sovereign LORD. Repent and live!” Ezekiel 18:32

This gives great insight into the character of God. So much higher than us! How often are we glad when a person we consider to be evil dies? God never takes pleasure in death. His desire is that everyone would repent and live! What sorrow He sees everyday! Oh that I could have a heart of compassion like His!

Father, help me to see people as you see them. To see how much each person is valued by you and how you long to see every person repent and live. Please shine your light into this world and bring others to you.
