These are two of the most wonderful qualities of our Heavenly Father, Jehovah God.
I think that if many earthly fathers meditated why they allowed some of the things that their children did, they would be without a real and valid answer. These qualities of the earthly fathers are but a tiny iota of the kindness that they were created with in the likeness of Jehovah God.

LOVING KINDNESS and UNDESERVED KINDNESS
November 1st, 2010 | Author: Douglas | Edit
We were created in the likeness of our Heavenly Father, and thus we can expect that He, in undeserved kindness, also overlooks some of our sins. In fact, it seems that Job 11:6 which reads: “Then he would tell you the secrets of wisdom, For the things of practical wisdom are manifold. Also, you would know that God allows some of your error to be forgotten for you,” seems to support the theory.
The verse uses the word “practical”, because Jehovah God knows that humans are born into sin, that the Devil is brilliantly wily, and that humans have weaknesses. So “errors” that humans commit, may definitely not constitute a danger to their fellow humans in the New World, may not involve the spilling of innocent blood, may not blaspheme the Holy Spirit and may not be in defiance or total ignoring of Jehovah God’ commandments, wishes or desires.
For instance, if you slip and fall, and a bad word comes from your mouth, and you immediately regret the happening, then Our God will surely not condemn you, especially as He knows that you always try to refrain from doing what is bad.
Many are the Scriptures in the Bible that mention Jehovah God’s undeserved kindness, His love and His mercy. Unfortunately, however, it will be observed from the rest of the Bible especially, that Jehovah God has to set the parameters to ensure the safety of all His real children in the New World.
There are more than enough Scriptures that urge you to approach Jehovah God with faith, confidence and the conviction that He will save you and love you into eternity, but also many warnings and occurrences of what happens to those who abuse this undeserved love and kindness of His.
Be Warned: There is a saying that kindness is often considered to be sign of weakness or stupidity. This may be so in most earthly cases, but definitely not with our Heavenly Father, Jehovah God!
Take Note: The words “Loving Kindness” is an expression of a Kindness that is bestowed with great love, and the words “Undeserved Kindness” is an expression of Kindness that can never be deserved or earned. The fact that we exist today, even if we are considered PERFECT ENOUGH to be in His coming Kingdom, is still a gift from Jehovah God that we will never be able to deserve. SO BECAUSE OF HIS LOVE, THE UNDESERVED KINDNESS EMANATED! It will ALWAYS be very good to REMEMBER this fact.
Let us look at a few Scriptures from the Bible about Loving Kindness and Undeserved Kindness:
6 but exercising loving-kindness toward the thousandth generation in the case of those who love me and keep my commandments, (Take note that there are going to be in excess of a thousand generations yet to come, and they are not going to exist in the type of world that Satan the Devil let us live in. JEHOVAH GOD SAYS SO! Take note who those people will be as described in the Scripture.)
“If you should lend money to my people, to the afflicted alongside you, you must not become like a usurer to him. You must not lay interest upon him. (It is important to note: This Scripture states: “my people – i.e. True Christians of Jehovah God”, your Spiritual Family. Your biological family and others are not included here.)
10 but exercising loving-kindness toward the thousandth generation in the case of those who love me and keep my commandments. (Take note that there are going to be in excess of a thousand generations yet to come, and they are not going to exist in the type of world that Satan the Devil let us live in. JEHOVAH GOD SAYS SO! Take note who those people will be as described in the Scripture.)
1 Chronicles 16:8
“Give thanks to Jehovah, YOU people; call upon his name, Make his deeds known among the peoples! (The above Scripture is evident, not only of the deeds, but far more importantly the loving kindness behind Jehovah God’s motivations, plans and deeds. We exist, and have the promise of life everlasting only due to the loving kindness that Jehovah God feels towards us. Without Jehovah God we cannot earn, achieve or deserve anything on our own.)
1 Chronicles 16:41
41 and with them He’man and Je·du’thun and the rest of the select men that were designated by names to thank Jehovah, because “to time indefinite is his loving-kindness”;
2 Chronicles 20:21
Further, he took counsel with the people and stationed singers to Jehovah and those offering praise in holy adornment as they went out ahead of the armed men, and saying: “GIVE praise to Jehovah, for to time indefinite is his loving-kindness.”
Then he would tell you the secrets of wisdom, For the things of practical wisdom are manifold. Also, you would know that God allows some of your error to be forgotten for you.
Give thanks to the God of the gods: For his loving-kindness is to time indefinite;
To the One striking down great kings: For his loving-kindness is to time indefinite;
And who proceeded to kill majestic kings: For his loving-kindness is to time indefinite;
And therefore Jehovah will keep in expectation of showing YOU favour, and therefore he will rise up to show YOU mercy. For Jehovah is a God of judgment. Happy are all those keeping in expectation of him.
For this is what the High and Lofty One, who is residing forever and whose name is holy, has said: “In the height and in the holy place is where I reside, also with the one crushed and lowly in spirit, to revive the spirit of the ones and to revive the heart of the ones being crushed.
Like a man whom his own mother keeps comforting, so I myself shall keep comforting YOU people; and in the case of Jerusalem YOU will be comforted . . .
“But let the one bragging about himself brag about himself because of this very thing, the having of insight and the having of knowledge of me, that I am Jehovah, the One exercising loving-kindness, justice and righteousness in the earth; for in these things I do take delight,” is the utterance of Jehovah. . .
For in loving-kindness I have taken delight, and not in sacrifice; and in the knowledge of God rather than in whole burnt offerings.
He has told you, O earthling man, what is good. And what is Jehovah asking back from you but to exercise justice and to love kindness and to be modest in walking with your God?
So YOU, also, when YOU have done all the things assigned to YOU, say, ‘We are good-for-nothing slaves. What we have done is what we ought to have done.’”
So the Word became flesh and resided among us, and we had a view of his glory, a glory such as belongs to an only-begotten son from a father; and he was full of undeserved kindness and truth.
“For God loved the world so much that he gave his only-begotten Son, in order that everyone exercising faith in him might not be destroyed but have everlasting life.
Nevertheless, I do not make my soul of any account as dear to me, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received of the Lord Jesus, to bear thorough witness to the good news of the undeserved kindness of God.
5 through whom we received undeserved kindness and an apostleship in order that there might be obedience of faith among all the nations respecting his name,
7 to all those who are in Rome as God’s beloved ones, called to be holy ones: May YOU have undeserved kindness and peace from God our Father and [the] Lord Jesus Christ.
24 and it is as a free gift that they are being declared righteous by his undeserved kindness through the release by the ransom [paid] by Christ Jesus.
On this account it was as a result of faith, that it might be according to undeserved kindness, in order for the promise to be sure to all his seed, not only to that which adheres to the Law, but also to that which adheres to the faith of Abraham. (He is the father of us all, might rule as king through righteousness with everlasting life in view through Jesus Christ our Lord.
Consequently, what shall we say? Shall we continue in sin, that undeserved kindness may abound?
For sin must not be master over YOU, seeing that YOU are not under law but under undeserved kindness.
See, therefore, God’s kindness and severity. Toward those who fell there is severity, but toward you there is God’s kindness, provided you remain in his kindness; otherwise, you also will be lopped off.
9 and that the nations might glorify God for his mercy. Just as it is written: “That is why I will openly acknowledge you among the nations and to your name I will make melody.”
1 Corinthians 1:4
I always thank God for YOU in view of the undeserved kindness of God given to YOU in Christ Jesus;
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has taken YOU except what is common to men. But God is faithful, and he will not let YOU be tempted beyond what YOU can bear, but along with the temptation he will also make the way out in order for YOU to be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 15:10
But by God’s undeserved kindness I am what I am. And his undeserved kindness that was toward me did not prove to be in vain, but I laboured in excess of them all, yet not I but the undeserved kindness of God that is with me.
2 Corinthians 13:14
The undeserved kindness of the Lord Jesus Christ and the love of God and the sharing in the holy spirit be with all of YOU.
6 which has presented itself to YOU, even as it is bearing fruit and increasing in all the world just as [it is doing] also among YOU, from the day YOU heard and accurately knew the undeserved kindness of God in truth.
Nevertheless, the reason why I was shown mercy was that by means of me as the foremost case Christ Jesus might demonstrate all his long-suffering for a sample of those who are going to rest their faith on him for everlasting life.
For making a show of such [knowledge] some have deviated from the faith. May the undeserved kindness be with YOU people.
2 Timothy 2:1
You, therefore, my child, keep on acquiring power in the undeserved kindness that is in connection with Christ Jesus,
9 but we behold Jesus, who has been made a little lower than angels, crowned with glory and honour for having suffered death, that he by God’s undeserved kindness might taste death for every [man].
Let us, therefore, approach with freeness of speech to the throne of undeserved kindness, that we may obtain mercy and find undeserved kindness for help at the right time.
15 carefully watching that no one may be deprived of the undeserved kindness of God; that no poisonous root may spring up and cause trouble and that many may not be defiled by it;
Wherefore, seeing that we are to receive a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us continue to have undeserved kindness, through which we may acceptably render God sacred service with godly fear and awe.
So, if any one of YOU is lacking in wisdom, let him keep on asking God, for he gives generously to all and without reproaching; and it will be given him.
1 Peter 1:10
Concerning this very salvation a diligent inquiry and a careful search were made by the prophets who prophesied about the undeserved kindness meant for YOU.
2 Peter 1:2
May undeserved kindness and peace be increased to YOU by an accurate knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord,
2 John 3
There will be with us undeserved kindness, mercy [and] peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ the Son of the Father, with truth and love.
My reason is that certain men have slipped in who have long ago been appointed by the Scriptures to this judgment, ungodly men, turning the undeserved kindness of our God into an excuse for loose conduct and proving false to our only Owner and Lord, Jesus Christ.
John to the seven congregations that are in the [district of] Asia: May YOU have undeserved kindness and peace from “The One who is and who was and who is coming,” and from the seven spirits that are before his throne,
