We must bear in mind that the mercy of the Lord has reached us all the time, from creation to now.
Do not be like your parents and your fellow Israelites, who were unfaithful to the Lord, the God of their ancestors, so that he made them an object of horror, as you see.
2 Chronicles 30:7
Almighty God has mercy on those who are merciful. The Lord cares for them and keeps them in all their ways, so it is good that we are faithful to God in all things and that we also keep His commandments.
But all those who seek their own pleasures and who are doing everything their heart tells them, some have rebelled against God, and for this reason God has given them to desolation.
