'They will be mine,' says the LORD Almighty, 'in the day when I make up my treasured possession. I will spare them, just as in compassion a man spares his son who serves him. And you will again see the distinction between the righteous and the wicked, between those who serve God and those who do not.
I so hope that I am a treasured possession to him. That I am the son/daughter with whom he will be compassionate. That I am among the righteous and not the wicked. I am confident that I am most days. But, I know I can't earn my way there and I'm so grateful for the grace that he mentions in this verse.
