Psalm on Sunday

Psalm 103:8--12
 8 The Lord is compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, abounding in love.
 9 He will not always accuse, nor will he harbor his anger forever;
10 he does not treat us as our sins deserve or repay us according to our iniquities.
11 For as high as the heavens are above the earth, 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.

This passage was on my scripture writings this week.  (I have been writing scriptures this year using plans from this site if you would like to check it out. A new one is posted each month.)

As I was writing this verse the attributes of the Lord in verses 8-10 stuck out to me.
slow to anger
abounding in love

I got to thinking that since those qualities describe Him, shouldn't they also describe me since I am a Christian?  It made me think..... Am I compassionate to others?  Am I slow to anger?  Do I forgive others instead of holding grudges against them?

Something to think about as we begin a new week.  Thanks for stopping by!

I am linking this week with Spiritual Sundays.

Have a day of blessings!
