Today let us see the 4th Cardinal Attribute of God with the help of MAN as the symbol. This refers to the HUMANITY of GOD ; His LOVE, COMPASSION and KINDNESS.
One of my beloved moments in life of Jesus was His moment in the Garden of Gethsemane just before the Crucifixion. Jesus knew the pain that was coming and He wishes for human companionship, He asks His beloved disciples to pray with Him but they fall asleep and He is left alone at the most painful moment in His life.
Rom 8:34: “Christ Jesus, who died-more than that, who was raised to life-is at the right hand of God and is also interceding for us.” And so we are never alone.
Another favorite moment of mine is in John 8 when the religious leaders bring before a woman who was living in sin and condemns her claiming Jesus approval to stone her to death. The blameless Jesus, the Holy Judge; the only one deserving the honor writes in the ground and then replies: “Let him without sin throw the first stone. And they leave one by one.” Jesus follows the Law but with love. He then asks the woman “where are they? Has no one condemned you? Neither do I, go and sin no more.” That is the loving compassion of my Lord and Master who even today looks at us and says to us every time we sin “Neither do I condemn you, go and sin no more.”
