Saturday, September 10 — Psalm 106:24–31
Ruth 4; Luke 23:32–43
When deeds of iniquity overwhelm us, you forgive our transgressions. Psalm 65:3
But the tax collector, standing far off, would not even look up to heaven, but was beating his breast and saying, “God, be merciful to me, a sinner!” Luke 18:13
Jesus, our righteous Judge, we know our sins and we are ashamed. Yet, you do not hold sin against us; rather, you accept our burdens as your own. Thank you for reaching into the pits of our sin and despair and for bringing us into your marvelous light. Amen.
