The Lord your god is gracious and merciful, and will not turn away his face from you, if ye return unto Him. — 2 Chr 30:9

God loves to forgive. The only time in the Bible God is represented as running is in the parable of the Prodigal Son, when the father ran to meet his penitent boy.

The Koran says that every man has two angels, who walk by his side all the day. One is the angel of good deeds, who records every good thing the man does, and outs it down ten times lest something may be omitted. The other is the angel of evil deeds, who keeps a record of every wrong thing the man does. At nightfall both these angels fly home to God and make their report.

The angel of good deeds tells of all that has been beautiful in the man’s conduct during the day, and the angel of evil deeds reports all the wrong. Then the angel of good deeds begs that the record of sins shall not be put down for seven hours. Perhaps the man will repent, confess, and be forgiven. This Mohammedan legend represents the truth about God, who is slow to anger and quick to show mercy.
