“My shield is with God, who saves the upright in heart.” – Psalm 7:10
A Hebrew poet found peace of mind by putting his trust in God who saves those who are honest and trustworthy. I wouldn’t worship a God who would save people who are dishonest, selfish, and greedy. But I would worship a God who would save people who repent their dishonesty, selfishness, and greed. God brings arrogant people down but God raises humble people up.
Dear Lord, we know that we are not perfect. And yet, you accept us as we are. Help us to grow in wisdom and in love. Amen
