Learning to Love
Titus, Psalms 108-109
May their sins always remain before the Lord, that he may blot out their name from the earth. . . Help me, Lord my God; save me according to your unfailing love. Psalm 109:15, 26
I cannot help but find the irony of these two statements in Psalm 109. David, the writer, wants God to condemn his enemies but save him (David) because of God’s “unfailing love.” David was a great man of God, but he struggled with sin as I do. I have peace ONLY because God says his love is unconditional. What I need from God is something I MUST grant to others. You cannot have one without the other.
Lord, teach me to love – unconditionally! AMEN.
