If you, O LORD, mark iniquities,
LORD, who can stand?
But with you is forgiveness,
that you may be revered. - Psalm 130: 3-4
We are all sinful. Our human nature is weak. We all make mistakes on a regular basis. None of us is worthy to stand before God. If God held all of our wrong-doing against us, we wouldn't stand a chance. Thankfully, we have a forgiving God. Each time we fall, if we are truly sorry, He welcomes us back with open arms. Forgiveness is a powerful thing, both to give and to receive. May we strive to offer others the same forgiveness that God so generously extends to us.
