Lesson 7: Prefixes, suffixes and construct form
הִנֵּה כְעֵינֵי עֲבָדִים (step 7 of 9)
Looking to the Lord

How sweet is it to know that our God is gracious and compassionate, slow to anger and abounding in loving-kindness! This does not mean that we can manipulate him or demand his forgiveness. But it does mean that we always know the best thing to do in each and every circumstance—to humbly look (and keep looking) to him for mercy. This is definitely something to sing about!
