I can’t imagine that we’re supposed to have a least favorite characteristic of God.
But to tell the whole truth, that’s how I always felt about the holiness of God.
Holy = Set Apart
Awesome. Powereful. Too great for me. Separated from me. “Up there.”
God’s holiness was the one quality in his character that separated him from me. It made him recoil from me, I thought. It made me ashamed.
So I thought about other things. I thought about his love and his forgiveness. I thought of him as my “Abba, Father.”
But I had missed the point! God opened my eyes to a greater understanding of his holiness and his compassion as I was reading Gentle and Lowly this week.
Maybe God’s holiness and his compassion fit together more perfectly than I’d ever understood before.
