Malachi 4:6

"And he shall turn the heart of the fathers to the children, and the heart of the children to their fathers; lest I come and smite the earth with a curse."

I personally didn't like the Old Testament, because it seemed really brutal. But after my nightly prayer for today (July 31, 2010), I got a new feeling for the Old Testament.

God showed us what He's capable of doing to us through the Old Testament, yet He sent His son to save us from the sins, the contrary between the New and Old Testament showed exactly the love God has for us.

The Old Testament tells us the nature of God that He’s loving, just and righteous, and these cannot contradict each other. Therefore, we shouldn't doubt His kindness based on His acts of justice and righteousness.
