Keeping Count?

August 26

Daily Bible Reading: Psalms 128 – 131

Verse of the Day: Psalm 130:3 – “If thou, Jehovah, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord, who could stand?”

Today’s readings and tomorrow’s will complete the Psalms of Ascent that we have been looking at. Our verse today comes from the 13oth Psalm. It is a song of penance before God. It is about waiting for the redemption of God.

Our verse for today is a great reminder for us if we get to thinking to much about ourselves. The writer of this song reminds us that if God kept a count of our sins, we would never be right with Him. Through the sacrifice of Jesus, we can rest assured that our sins are dismissed and God does not keep track of them.

As I sincerely look at my life, I can say that I am glad that He does not keep count. Look at your own life today – what would it be like without Jesus.

Prayer: Great God of Forgiveness and Mercy, I praise You today. Amen.
