Today's Verse: Psalm 106:6

Tuesday, July 3, 2007

We have sinned, even as our fathers did; we have done wrong and acted wickedly.
— Psalm 106:6

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Sin is nothing new. The candor of Scripture allows us to see the stupidities and rebelliousness of God's people in the past. We can be convicted by their lost opportunities and the disasters they brought upon themselves. We can also be reminded how little difference there often is between them and us.

My Prayer...

Father, I know my sin, my rebellion, and my unfaithfulness have hurt you and your cause today every bit as much as the sins of those in the Bible hurt in the past. Please forgive and strengthen me as I seek to live a life holy and pleasing to you and a blessing to those around me. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
