Thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes

July 6, 2012 - Friday Evening

Thy lovingkindness is before mine eyes.

For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in your faithfulness. 1 

The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. 2 

so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven. For he makes his sun rise on the evil and on the good, and sends rain on the just and on the unjust. 3 

Therefore be imitators of God, as beloved children. And walk in love, as Christ loved us and gave himself up for us, a fragrant offering and sacrifice to God. 4 

Be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, as God in Christ forgave you. 5 

Having purified your souls by your obedience to the truth for a sincere brotherly love, love one another earnestly from a pure heart, 6 

For the love of Christ controls us, because we have concluded this: that one has died for all, therefore all have died; 7 

But love your enemies, and do good, and lend, expecting nothing in return, and your reward will be great, and you will be sons of the Most High, for he is kind to the ungrateful and the evil. Be merciful, even as your Father is merciful. 8
