Have you ever found yourself holding an offense? For whatever reason, you somehow felt that you were overlooked or mistreated. And when you feel that way, it so easy to retreat and decide that since they were wrong, they should be making the first move. Sadly, I found myself in this place recently, although I knew it was not the proper attitude to have. And this morning lo and behold, God shows His humorous side.
I have missed reading in Psalms and Proverbs since I started using my Chronological read through the Bible plan. So today I veered off the track of my normal Bible reading path and read Psalms 130. My eyes widen as I read verses 3-4 in The Message Bible.
If you God, kept records on wrongdoings,
who would stand a chance?
As it turns out, forgiveness is your habit,
and that’s why you’re worshiped.
Yeah I had been chasten by His Word. As I chuckled internally, I knew it was time to wipe my little scoreboard clean. All the times I have done wrong toward God are numerous to count. Yet when I ask, He stands willing and ready to forgive me.
Is there someone you have held a grudge against? If so today is the perfect day to set the score back at zero.
