Today’s Worship Walk – Wednesday

 

“…as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has he removed our transgressions from us.

As a father has compassion on his children,
    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear him…

Psalm 103:12-13

It’s good to be aware of our behavior and to feel badly when we sin. But I can easily get caught up in self-condemnation, which never leads to lasting change. And when I take this view, I’m forgetting what God has promised to do. Not only does He forgive me when I ask, but separates the sin from me completely. That is both a comfort and an inspiration to turn toward better choices.
