Goodness and Mercy.
We’d like it in front of us. To be in the place that we’re walking into. That it would be our present and near future experience.
Often though, as we follow the shepherd, goodness and mercy follow us. We see it in our rear view mirror. It’s spread through our past, continuing to bring blessing even after we’ve gone.
A legacy of goodness and mercy in other’s lives… You’d take that wouldn’t you?
