Psalms 103:10

“He does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.” Sometimes I must admit, I get frustrated hearing the words “I deserve it”; especially when hearing it from the ME generation that focuses only on themselves. I do struggle with the “deserve” word. Like it is a guarantee of some sort, where they did something so grand that they should get whatever they want. It seems that we as a civilization are losing our concept of gratefulness and replacing it with an entitlement mindset. According to the Bible, the only thing we deserve is death. But praise be to Jesus Christ and what He did for us on the cross that we are saved from our own demise. The blessings we do receive are by grace not by entitlement and we need to be grateful. As Americans, we have basic rights that are God given but to say we deserving is a far stretch. God Loves Ya 😉
