Today's Verse: Jeremiah 10:24

Friday, June 29, 2007

Correct me, LORD, but only with justice — not in your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing.
— Jeremiah 10:24

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

God is love! God is also holy and righteous! If he did not lovingly and tenderly correct us, none of us could survive before his awesome perfection. Yet our God has chosen to give us his undeserved mercy and kindness as he corrects us and molds us to be more like him.

My Prayer...

Holy and righteous Father, I truly do want to become more like you in my daily character; but please, dear Father, humble and correct me gently for you know how small I am compared to you. In the name of my Savior, your Son Jesus, I pray. Amen.
