2 Chronicles 28:11–“Now listen to me! Send back your fellow Israelites you have taken as prisoners, for the Lord’s fierce anger rests upon you.”
The Lord had allowed Israel to defeat Judah, but Israel had taken advantage of it and not just defeated them, but slaughtered them. Now Israel is being reminded that they, too, are sinful in God’s sight and should let go their prisoners or face the great wrath of God. Do we assume that we’re better than others and that they deserve to be stepped on? We’re not perfect either and we must remember that God wants us to have mercy just like he had mercy on us, too.
Father, give me compassion and mercy for those I am around. Help me to not view myself as better than others. I want to know You more and follow You in everything.
