Reading 9—Unlimited Mercy
READ PSALM 51
I recently had an argument with a Facebook friend. I had re-posted a statement that said, “Sometimes you are the bad guy.” Jake (not his real name) could never see himself as the bad guy. Jake is not the only one who thinks that way, but a more common view is, “Well, at least I am not as bad as that person.” A third way to respond to this psalm is the person who believes that they are so bad they could never receive God’s mercy.
