Written by Verse of the Day

Psalm 69:5-6

You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you. May those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me, O Lord, the LORD Almighty; may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me, O God of Israel.

Thoughts on Today’s Verseā€¦
While we’re all weak and sinful, and while we do have Jesus to atone for our sins and to intercede before the Father on our behalf, there are still a couple of big problems with our sin. This verse reminds us of one of them: we don’t want our sin to be an embarrassment to God or his people. Let’s avoid sin because that is what God wants us to do. Let’s avoid sin so it won’t reflect badly on God’s people. But let’s also pray for ourselves and our brothers and sisters in Christ that God will not allow our failures to bring shame on his Church, his Christ, and his cause.
