Day 17: Psalm 32:1-2

1Happy are those whose transgression is forgiven, whose sin is covered. Happy are those to whom the Lord imputes no iniquity, and in whose spirit there is no deceit..

Psalm 32:1-2

The psalmist offers the word “happy” to describe the impact of forgiveness. I love that. Happiness is showing and feeling pleasure and contentment. Forgiveness makes such a change in our heart that it shows on our face. It changes our perspective to the extent that we change our actions.

As we begin a new week, let’s do so by happily being reminded that our sins are forgiven. I can’t think of a better way to begin.
