God’s Forgiveness May Involve Harsh Judgments

Numbers 14:26-30 NRSV

And the Lord spoke to Moses and to Aaron, saying: How long shall this wicked congregation complain against me? I have heard the complaints of the Israelites, which they complain against me. (Numbers 14:26-27)

God’s chastisement is a component of God’s love and forgiveness.

Your voice: God, I thank you for loving me enough to chastise and forgive me. I love you, Lord. Amen.
