Notes:

Exodus 34:6 and 7 God reveals Himself. He is compassionate, gracious, slow to anger, abounding in loving-kindness, abounding in truth; He keeps loving-kindness for thousands, forgives sin, and by no means leaves the guilty unpunished.

Matthew 5:43-48 The attributes of God are to be emulated by His children. We are to be like God!

Colossians 3:12-14 God is compassionate; therefore, we are to be compassionate.

Titus 3:1-11 God has been so gracious to all people that we should likewise share grace one with another and avoid foolish controversies and factious people.

1Peter 3:20; 2Peter 3:5-9; Ephesians 4:1-3; and 1Thessalonians 5:14 and 15 God is slow to anger, longsuffering; so should we be.

Nehemiah 9:17; Romans 2:4 Once again, God is our model to follow regarding this aspect of love.

Ephesians 4:31 and 32 Kindness is contrasted with the hardhearted attitudes of bitterness, wrath, anger, etc.

Ephesians 4:12-16, 25, 29-5:2 God is abounding in truth, and we too should speak truth one to another. If we bite and devour one another, we destroy God's people and demean His desires.

Matthew 6:12-15 God forgives and fully expects His children to do the same. Let it go! If you keep on thinking about it and talking about it, forgiveness most likely has not yet been realized.
