Today's Verse: Psalm 103:8

Tuesday, August 9, 2005

The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
— Psalm 103:8

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God is holy, righteous, and just. But, as important as these qualities are, he reveals them within his compassion, graciousness, patience, and overflowing mercy and love. We can not only obey, worship, and reverently respect God, we can also love, appreciate, and adore him! Maybe the greatest challenge, however, is to reflect the character of God in our own lives!

My Prayer...

Lord God Almighty, I not only trust in you, but I appreciate your faithfulness, your mercy, your love, your graciousness, and your patient compassion. Please help me display each of these virtues more fully. In the name of the Lord Jesus. Amen.
