Even though there has been the tragedy of terrorism in Turkey, a tragic accident at an air show, the trauma of another hurricane in Florida, and we have faced another tentative election cycle, it is Monday and God is still on His throne.

Instead of focusing on the worries and woes of life, I choose to reflect on God’s love that’s expressed as His “benefits” in Psalm 103. On this Monday morning, I praise God because:

1. He forgives our sin (Psalm 103:3).

2. He satisfies us with good things (Psalm 103:5)

3. He executes righteousness and justice (Psalm 103:6).

4. He is slow to anger and abounds in mercy (Psalm 103:8).

5. He doesn’t deal with us as our sins deserve (Psalm 103:10).

6. He has removed our sin as far as the east is from the west (Psalm 103:12).

Thank God It’s Monday!
