“The Lord is full of mercy and compassion, slow to anger and of great kindness.”
All of us have our imperfections and these we will take to the grave. But, in spite of our varied weaknesses, Jesus calls us, like he did Zacchaeus, to come down and serve Him; to meet Him heart to heart.
We should not look upon Jesus from far away. He invites us to come close and feel His Heart beating against our hearts. God offers us His Mercy and forgiveness if we only would accept it, not on our terms, but on His.
Become more faithful and focused on your goal and if you fail, even many times after this, get up and keep trying. It is after all not so much that we fail, but rather that we get up with His help, confident in His Mercy and Compassion.
“He has come to search out and save what was lost.” We should allow ourselves to be found; it is a much easier way.
