You know my folly, O God; my guilt is not hidden from you. May those who hope in you not be disgraced because of me, O Lord, the Lord Almighty; may those who seek you not be put to shame because of me, O God of Israel.

— Psalm 69:5-6

Thoughts on Today’s Verse…

While we’re all weak and sinful, we are thankful to have Jesus to atone for our sins and to intercede before the Father on our behalf. Hallelujah for that grace! However, there are still a couple of significant problems with our sins. This verse reminds us of one of them. We don’t want our sins to become a stumbling block to others or a disgrace to God and his people. Let’s avoid sin because that is what God wants us to do. Let’s avoid sin so it won’t reflect poorly on God’s people. Let’s certainly avoid sin to keep from influencing others to sin. Let’s also pray for ourselves and our brothers and sisters in Christ that God will not allow our failures to disgrace his Church, his Christ, and his cause.

My Prayer…

Forgive me, loving Shepherd, for my sins. I am sorry for rebelling against your grace. I am fully confident you have forgiven and cleansed me of my sins through Jesus’ sacrifice. But please, dear God, use your divine power to prevent my sins and failures from bringing shame or embarrassment to you and your people as I seek to be a more redemptive influence on those around me. In Jesus’ mighty name and based on your grace, I pray. Amen.
