grace 8x10

Today’s thought about grace is Psalm 103:10–He hath not dealt with us after our sins; nor rewarded us according to our iniquities.

Thinking about this moved me to tears. I am so grateful that God doesn’t deal with me according to my sin. What a mess I’d be in!

I thought about parenting and wonder why I’m so grateful that God doesn’t deal with me constantly according to my sin, but I’m so willing to deal with my son that way? I am not advocating allowing uncontrolled children at all. It just struck me that I’m thankful God doesn’t constantly correct me and lecture me and take away my privileges, but I tend to deal with my son that way.

Instead God allows his word to quietly seep into my soul and convict me. He gives me room to think and change. He doesn’t nag. He doesn’t holler.

What does this verse mean to you?
