Today's reading: Psalm 32:1-11

In Psalm 32 we see a firsthand account from David of the consequences of not immediately confessing and seeking forgiveness for sin (vs.3-4), followed by the result of asking for, and receiving, God’s forgiveness (vs. 5). I like the way David sets this psalm out basically conveying, You can learn from me. This is the wise thing to do and here’s why.

When and/or how often do you ask God for forgiveness? What’s your experience been with asking God for forgiveness immediately after the offense versus waiting until sometime later? What are the benefits of keeping a short account with God when it comes to asking for forgiveness? Tami
