Hello again, and happy Day Before Friday Day! In this chapter we have a repeat of God’s promise that Abraham will have a son, and we have some foreshadowing of what’s going to happen in Sodom and Gomorrah. Yes, there is sort of a cliffhanger ending at the end of the chapter, but we all know what’s coming for those two cities. There’s a point in there though, and it’s this: God is very merciful. God is more merciful than we give Him credit for, but ultimately there must be justice, so that mercy can’t go on forever.
So when does God’s mercy end? Well, we know God wants all people to be with Him, and we know God goes to extraordinary efforts to reach people no matter what their circumstances are, so I think God’s mercy goes as far as it possibly can until God knows that more mercy will do no good. That’s my theory anyway.
See you all next week for the next episode! Have a great weekend, and leave me lots of comments.
