Genesis 38:7 But Er, Judah’s firstborn, was wicked in the LORD’s sight; so the LORD put him to death.
In all reality, Lord, you could and should do the same with me! O,Icantry toreason that I’m notas bad as most people.I can point not only to thewickedness of others, but my acts of kindness, and argue that I’m a good person. Yet in comparison with yourperfect will,I can’t stand! I am a law-breaker anda sinner. My heart is filled with wicked thoughts and evil attitudes. And yet you are patient with me andforgive me day in and day out. You promise that you won’t put me to death. You did that to your own Son! Instead, you promise that I have forgiveness and eternal life with you. Renew me each day with that truth that my gratitude and joy are seeninmyattitude, my words, and myactions. Amen.
