This isn’t the Day of Judgment. This is the day of great mercy. The Day of Judgment is in His hands. The day of mercy is in ours. All of us who received His forgiveness have done so because of His mercy. All we’re praying is, “God, I know I’m no better than the people of this city. Please show them the same undeserved mercy You’ve shown to me.” God longs to extend His mercy to people who no longer recognize the difference between their right hand and their left. (See Jonah 4:11.) That is not a derogatory remark about their intelligence. Far from it. It’s a statement about the ability of the majority to distinguish between right and wrong.
