The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made.
The implications of this short statement are widespread and of enormous importance in our understanding of the dimensions of our relationship with the LORD, God, the Almighty. Look at that first sentence. He is gracious, merciful and abounding in steadfast love, BUT there are limits on each; He is slow to anger implies that He can be angered. A limit on graciousness? A limit to His mercy? A limit on His steadfast mercy? Not in our usual human sense, ie a withdrawal of His mercy? No, not at all, but a point at which He can and will become angered at my intransigence.
