DAILY READINGS: Numbers 32:1-42; Proverbs 28:1-28; Luke 4:1-15

Though formerly I was a blasphemer, persecutor, and insolent opponent. But I received mercy because I had acted ignorantly in unbelief. 1 Timothy 1:13

The Apostle looked back on what he had done and then thanked God that He is indeed merciful and willing to pardon.
Dear reader, whatever your past circumstances of life, there is a God who is merciful and willing to forgive. If you have not
done so, may you experience the mercy that only He can give today. —John M. Clegg

Depth of mercy!
Can there be mercy still reserved for me;
Can my God His wrath forbear,
Me, the chief of sinners, spare? —C. Wesley
