Psalm 25:8-11

Psalm 25:8 Yahveh is good and upright; that is why he shows sinners the road.

Psalm 25:9 He leads the humble in what is right and teaches them his road.

Psalm 25:10 All Yahveh’s ways show covenant faithfulness and truth to those who keep his covenant and decrees.

Psalm 25:11 Yahveh, for the sake of your name, forgive my violation, because it is enormous.

an enormous violation

Anyone who seriously considers the holiness of God can come to no other conclusion concerning himself than David did. He realized his sinfulness was not a mere stain, but an enormous violation. Although he was a “great” man in other peoples’ estimation, he could only approach God by humbly asking for forgiveness. He did not even seek forgiveness for his own sake, but sought it for the sake of the LORD’s name.

LORD, this is our starting point. We seek your forgiveness and your guidance. We want to know you and even to lead others to you, but our enormous violation keeps getting in the way. Forgive us, LORD. and change us.
