Compassion is a deeply emotional word used to convey the strong bond between a parent and their child. In this video, we look at this rich Hebrew word, the first one God uses to describe himself in Exodus 34:6-7. God is portrayed as a compassionate parent throughout Scripture-both as a mother and a father, and his compassion is embodied in the person of Jesus.
Today, our reading comes from Exodus 35-40 as the Israelites begin construction on the Tabernacle with God’s specific instructions, and God fills his new dwelling place with his glory.
