List of Sins

When I was in school, I played in the band. Our band teacher had many rules for us to obey. We were not to miss a band practice or come late to a practice. And we could not forget to bring our musical instrument to school.
The band teacher had a chart on the wall. If we broke any of his rules, he would make a mark on the chart. Each time we received a mark by our name, he punished us. If we received too many marks, he would send home a letter to our parents. We did not want that to happen, so we tried to obey his rules.
I am so glad that God is not like that band teacher. God does not keep a list of our sins. Verse 9 of our Bible Reading says, “But if we confess our sins, God will forgive us. We can trust God to do this…He will make us clean from all the wrong things we have done.”
I am so thankful that God will forgive me. Praise God for His love and forgiveness today!
