Slow: Joel 2:13

"Rend your heart and not your garments.
Return to the Lord your God, 
for He is gracious and compassionate,
slow to anger and abounding in love,
and He relents from sending calamity."
Joel 2:13
To ponder today:

- What is the difference between surrendering externally {garments torn} and surrendering your heart?

- How does it encourage you that:
... God is slow to anger?
... God is gracious, compassionate and abounding in love?
... God withholds sending calamity as He chooses?
