Psalm 103:10 - He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
I am glad you asked. It is my opinion.
This is the USA. Where we are allowed to have different opinions, or at least we used to be when I was maturing in life. This doesn’t have to be the greatest verse for you.
Go read God’s Word and discover your own “greatest verse”.
I have started a “prayer walk” here at Fairway Christian Church on Friday mornings where I work. I was sharing with our walkers this scripture verse before we began our walk.
My thoughts were zeroed in on this concept that God doesn’t deal with me according to my sins and I was immediately flooded with thankfulness. Oh, those ugly sins I have committed in my life. Any one of them would be enough to send me to Hell for all eternity and then I read this verse and it says, “God doesn’t deal with me according to my sins, nor repay me according to my iniquities.”
Is there anything wrong with having a favorite verse? No.
Is there anything wrong with our favorite verse changing? No.
What is the most important thing here is that we continue to read God’s Word and allow it to speak to us. As it speaks to us may we allow it to change us so we can be the best version of ourselves.
It seems in life from time to time we look to others for an example of how to live. If you are such a person then please allow me to present to you, Ezra. For he had made up his mind (firmly resolved) to study the Law of the LORD.
There is a great example for all of us to imitate.
My advice and please hear my heart when I say this to you today, read God’s Word because you know it is God’s Love Letter to you from Him.

FYI: I have been teaching on Wednesday nights at Fairway Christian Church. The lessons have been about lesser known Apostles, Overcoming Suffering, and Matthew 24 about the destruction of Jerusalem, and Jesus' 2nd Coming. I am attaching a link for anyone interested in watching the lessons I have taught the last few months.
Also, these lessons are "Live Streamed" on Wednesday evenings at 6 pm (EST). I would love for you to join us.
