INFINITE MERCY

Psalm 103:17 (NKJV)
But the mercy of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting On those who fear Him,
And His righteousness to children’s children.

There is an old story … about the Jewish rabbi centuries ago who consented to take a weary traveler into his house for a night’s rest.

After they had eaten together, the rabbi said, “You are a very old man, are you not?”

“Yes,” the traveler replied, “I am almost a century old.”

As they talked, the rabbi brought up the matter of religion and asked the visitor about his faith and about his relation to God.

“Oh, I do not believe in God,” the aged man replied. “I am an atheist.”

The rabbi was infuriated. He arose and opened the door and ordered the man from his house.

“I cannot keep an atheist in my house overnight,” he reasoned . . .

But then the voice of God said, “Son, I have endured him for almost 100 years—don’t you think you could endure him for one night?” . . .

It was the mercy of God that had endured the atheist for nearly 100 years.
