Psalms 90:14 -- On Mercy and Gladness

"O satisfy us early with thy mercy; that we may rejoice and be glad all our days."
Psalms 90:14

I was reading this today and it reminded me of "remember how merciful the Lord hath been unto the children of men" from Moroni 10:3.  They seem like similar admonitions... basically, that we should contemplate God's mercy.

I like the idea here that God's mercy (and our satisfaction with it) will cause us to rejoice all our days.  I think that is a similar idea that Moroni is presenting as well.  Pondering God's mercy can help us to realize a lot of truth: at the core, that the Gospel is true, and that God isn't an ogre, but a loving Father who always wants the best for us, and who works tirelessly for our happiness.

Today, let's take some time to think about God's mercy and talk to God and really try to understand that idea.  I think if we do, we will find that the concept is really satisfying, as well as the other answers that God offers.  So satisfying, in fact, that it will fill our lives with joy and gladness.  Let's keep pondering and keep remembering, so that we can keep that joy flowing in our lives.
