according to your great compassion
    blot out my transgressions.
Wash away all my iniquity
    and cleanse me from my sin.

10 Create in me a pure heart, O God,
    and renew a steadfast spirit within me.

    or take your Holy Spirit from me.
12 Restore to me the joy of Your salvation
    and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.

Psalm 103:
10 He does not treat us as our sins deserve
    or repay us according to our iniquities.

    so great is His love for those who fear Him;
12 as far as the east is from the west,
    so far has He removed our transgressions from us.

    so the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him;

Wise Words *Proverbs

Proverbs 22:17-19    (Paraphrased)
~~~
Incline your ear
Wise words hear
In this you can take a pledge
Apply your heart to this knowledge
It’s pleasant to keep them within you
Yes, this is a good, wise thing to do
Let wisdom be fixed upon your lips
From your mouth let wise words drip
So that in the Lord you can trust
His Word is righteous and just
This is the instruction for today
Meditate on it as you go your way

Best Loot

The Spirit’s fruit
Is the best loot
It will help you in life
And protect you in strife
You will meet the day
And be more than okay
With God’s presence by your side
In His peace you will abide
There are no gifts like His
Gracious and generous He is
So if you want the Spirit’s fruit
Go to Him and ask for His loot
Who does not want these to employ
They are love, peace, and joy
Self-control, faithfulness, goodness
Gentleness, and kindness
Against these there is no law
The Spirit’s fruit has no flaw

Yes, 7

Proverbs 6:16-19     (paraphrased)

These 6 things the Lord does hate
With them do not mate
Yes, 7 are an abomination to Him
Do them and your life will be grim:
1. A proud look; haughty eyes
This the Lord does despise
2. A lying tongue
Whether old or young
3. Hands that shed innocent blood
Avoid this like a grave flood
4. A heart devising wicked plans
In any woman or man’s
5. Feet swiftly running to evil
Wickedness is their retrieval
6. A false witness speaking lies
The truth he/she denies
7. One who sows discord among brethren
Whether young, old, women, or men
