Who is a God like you, who removes guilt
and pardons sin for the remnant of his inheritance;
Who does not persist in anger forever,
but instead delights in mercy . . .
St. Alpnonsus Liguiori likens God to a mother, pulling us onto our lap, stroking our hair, and showing mercy:
Far from despising our confidence in Him, He rejoices that we have it - confidence and familiarity and affection like that which little children show toward their mothers.
(How to Converse with God)
Micah seems to be saying the same thing -- God "delights in mercy" He delights in forgiving us. The face of God is not only the face of the patriarch, the king, the ruler; it is also the face of the mother.
Why, then, should I hesitate?
