Morning Devotional:

Now that I am getting older, I am finding that it is getting easier to forget things. As a matter of fact, I had a pretty forgetful day yesterday. I forgot to mail a birthday card and some bills. I went to the grocery store to pick up milk and ended up leaving the store with a bunch of things, except for the gallon milk I went there for. I forgot to make an important phone call and I forgot to cancel an appointment. I was not on track yesterday at all.

I may be forgetful but I am also pretty good at remembering things I would much rather forget. I remember the times when I have been wronged, or when I have been hurt by someone else’s unkind words or actions. Here’s something I would love to forget – the times when I have been the one who has sinned against someone else. It is those times when I am astounded by God’s memory – specifically, His willingness to forgive our sins and wipe them away. God is holy and just and full of compassion. We don’t deserve mercy but God gives it. We don’t merit forgiveness but God grants it. And those sins, in the light of His forgiveness and mercy, are gone.

Psalm 103:12 says this: “As far as the east is from the west, so far has he removed our transgressions from us.” God forgives sins and forgets them, too. I love that.

Today's Scripture
Do not withhold good from those to whom it is due, when it is in your power to act. Do not say to your neighbor, “Come back tomorrow and I’ll give it to you” when you already have it with you. Proverbs 3:27-28
