Record of Wrongs

Psalm 130:3 "If you, O LORD, kept a record of sins, O Lord, who could stand?"
I read this passage yesterday and it hit me like a ton of bricks. The Holy Lord, who has every right to keep a record of sins, does not for those who repent and believe. Yet how many times do I hold on to my children's wrong-doings and forget to extend them the grace I've so undeservedly been given? Lord, help me to "remember their frame" and not expect my children to be more sanctified than I!

Great thoughts jennifer! Leave it to you to fill my head with God's truth. I am still saying "do not do weary in doing good" over and over through my day!

God bless!
