Khesed

A man can no more diminish God’s glory by refusing to worship Him
than a lunatic can put out the sun by scribbling the word,
‘darkness’ on the walls of his cell.

C.S. Lewis

“Khesed…mercy…love.
It’s God’s nature, His essence.
Don’t forget that, through all this, don’t forget that.
Judgement is His necessity,
but His nature and essence–
His heart–
is love.”

Jonathan Cahn
The Harbinger

    Where would I be without the mercy of God? As the Year of Mercy, as declared by Pope Francis, comes to a close, let us not forget that as God is merciful to us, we are called to be merciful to others.

    Khsesed is a beautifully rich Hebrew word…next week Lord willing I’ll be posting a book review on a scholarly work on this word but I plan in the future to do a series of posts on it!
