Text: Psalm 51:1-10
according to your abundant mercy blot out my transgressions
Find some sand, or loose dirt in which you can “write” down your transgressions—the ways you may have violated a rule, a command, or a duty, or crossed a boundary or exceeded a limit in relation to God, to others, to yourself. When you have written them, sit with them for a while, and then erase them, blot them out.
How does it feel to consider your transgressions? How are they always a part of you? What is it like to have them blotted out? Can you leave them behind and start over anew?
