It’s June 1st and that means we’re adding a new SSMT verse today. I’m still moving through Psalm 103, so today’s verse is:
“He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.” ~Psalm 103:10 (KJV)
This is another way of saying, “God is merciful”. The funny thing is, God is far more merciful than mankind. We are critical of others and ourselves. One thing I’m learning from my journey through Thin Within is that God’s grace is sufficient. This allows me to let myself off the hook for not being perfect. This doesn’t mean I’m saying, “Oh well, God forgives.” No, it means I recognize my errors without condemnation while relying on God to change those behaviors.
The Bible tells us the “wages of sin is death”. I don’t know about you, but I’m mighty thankful He doesn’t “reward” His children “according to our iniquities”.

Ok, now I really need to get some stuff done today. Blessings!
