Like an expertly cut diamond, God’s character is multifaceted. All His attributes work together to magnify the light of His glory. Two such attributes are His mercy and justice.
These qualities seem to be at odds with one another, don’t they? How can God show mercy with one hand while dealing out judgment with the other? Jesus’ boldest disciple tackled this question head-on in 2 Peter 2:4–11.
Ponder this quandary with Pastor Chuck Swindoll. While the complex fullness of God’s character remains a mystery, followers of Jesus Christ can rejoice in the wonder of who God is.
