The Lord is . Slow to anger and abounding in lovingkindness. Psalm 103:8b Many of us do not really believe in the unconditional love of God. We dwell excessively on ourselves and on our mistakes. And so we keep asking, 'Who am I that the Lord should love me?' Instead we ought to be asking, 'Who are you, O my God, that you love me so much?' John Powell, 1925-2009

He has not dealt with us according to our sins, Nor rewarded us according to our iniquities. .great is His lovingkindness toward those who fear (awe) Him. Psalm 103:10-11b So much of His mercy comes and goes without our noticing it! Charles H. Spurgeon, 1834-92

As far as the east is from the west, So far has He removed our transgressions from us. Psalm 103:12 Christ’s death on the cross included a sacrifice for all our sins, past, present, and future. Every sin that believers will ever commit has already been paid for. Erwin L. Lutzer 1941-

Just as a father has compassion on his children, So the Lord has compassion on those who fear Him. Psalm 103:13 The father pitieth his children that are weak in knowledge, and instructs them; pities them when they are forward, and bears with them; pities them when they are sick, and comforts them; when they are fallen, and helps them up again; when they have offended, and upon their submission, forgives them; and when they are wronged, rights them. Matthew Henry, 1662-1714, Welsh-born, English nonconformist minister Bible commentator

For He Himself knows our frame; He is mindful that we are but dust. Psalm 103:14 God understands you better than anyone else. He knows how people get to be the way they are and how they are affected by their surroundings. John Piper, 1946-, Pastor Bethlehem Baptist Church, Minneapolis, Mn
