God's Love & Mercy

        Right now, an art exhibit in the Philippines is provoking great outrage because the exhibition desecrated the sacred, all in the name of cultivating artistic expression.  Out of reverence for the Lord, I don't even want to describe one exhibit that includes a crucifix.  Another one shows a statue of Jesus with the ears of Mickey Mouse.  Of course, the Lord could instantly wipe out both the artist and his works if he so wishes, but he doesn't.  When he was on earth, he remained meek and humble, always turning the other cheek, finally offering himself to be crucified on the cross.   This art exhibit is just one example of the billions of sins committed against the Lord every day throughout the whole world.  His love and mercy are so great that he endures them all.  It's totally accurate to say that people condemn themselves, while God wants to save them.  Such a great, loving God deserves all our love and adoration.
