From Pastor’s Desk:
As a father pities his children, So the Lord pities those who fear Him. Psalm 103:13
“Pities” is translated from the Greek word רָחַם râcham (raw-kham’), which is, to fondle; by implication to love, especially to compassionate…
As children we have known the “pity” of our parent(s) as we would come to them with a “boo-boo” of some kind. As they would take us in their arms and comfort us as only a parent can, the hurt, even if it really was painful, would subside and off we would go, back to what we were doing before the incident.
Those of us who are parents now know the other side of pity. Rather than receive it, as we did as a child, we now give it, as a parent.
There is never a hurt so big that God can’t make it subside. He will take us in His arms and comfort us until we can go back to what we were doing before the incident.
