5 Ways We Take God's Mercy For Granted

According to Charles Spurgeon here are five ways we take the mercy of God for granted:
  1. By allowing it to remain, unnoticed, ungratefully passing it over.
  2. By claiming it as our due, and talking as if God were bound to bear with us.
  3. By opposing its design, and refusing to repent (Prov. 1:24-25).
  4. By perverting it into a reason for hardness of heart, presumption, infidelity, and further sin (Zeph. 1:12, Eccl. 8:11).
  5. By urging it as an apology for procrastination (2 Pet. 3:3-4).
