Keep Me From Stupid Sins
“…Keep me from stupid sins, from thinking I can take over your work; Then I can start this day sun-washed, scrubbed clean of the grime of sin. These are the words in my mouth; these are what I chew on and pray. Accept them when I place them on the morning altar, O God, my Altar-Rock, God, Priest-of-My-Altar.” – Psalm 19:11-14 MSG
Simple enough, right? I literally almost laughed out loud today when I read “stupid sins” – mostly because it’s so true. Sins really are pretty stupid. I can’t think of a better descriptive word.
I hope that this little excerpt will stick with you throughout the day today. May you be washed clean of the sins that try so stealthily to stick to you, and may you be comforted by the truth that Jesus has died to set you free from them. And to set you free from repeating the ones that want to cling so closely.
