A powerful, thought-provoking insight....

Give me a well-trained tongue that has been borne out of silent listening in the sanctuary of my heart.

Psalm 19, v.  12b, 13b: "Clear me from hidden faults. . . . Then I shall be blameless, and innocent of great transgression."

If we ask for help from God in taking from us our hidden, subtle faults, imagine the cumulative freedom from sin, separation, and anxiety over the small stuff.  God doesn't sweat the small stuff. Should we?  If we mindfully live our lives as reflections of our understanding of God's desires for us, if we stay open to God's guidance of our actions, then when we don't measure up to things throughout the day, can we depend upon God's forgiveness of these lacks, as long as we net a good day?

Something to ponder.
