Attributes of God -- Day 17

Merciful -- God is an actively compassionate being.  In His actions, He responds in a compassionate way toward those who have opposed His will in their pursuit of their own way.

... and with you, Lord, is unfailing love;
and, You reward everyone
   according to what they have done.
Psalm 62:12

Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
   love and faithfulness go before you. 
Psalm 89:14

What then shall we say? Is God unjust? Not at all! For he says to Moses,
   “I will have mercy on whom I have mercy,
   and I will have compassion on whom I have compassion.”
 It does not, therefore, depend on human desire or effort, but on God’s mercy.
Romans 9:14-16
