Seek to be close to God

God's mercy has been and is even now extended toward all creatures, even to a little bird of insignificance that flies through the air.

If He extends His Mercy to sinners and makes it rain upon the just and the unjust alike, how much more will His Mercy abound toward those who walk with Him in the perfect bond of love.

The gates of Heaven are opened wide and the pathways of this life are made straight by his abounding Mercy to all who are willing to draw nigh unto Him.

The closer a person is to a lamp the brighter the light of the lamp will be.

So it is with the bright light of God's Mercy, the closer we come to God the brighter His Mercy shines.

Brethren, seek to be close to God.
