Devotion for October 24

Jeremiah 10:24

Correct me, LORD, but only with justice — not in your anger, lest you reduce me to nothing.

Jeremiah is bold and must be closer to God than. I want mercy, not justice but let’s examine. Justice means to me a scale of good and bad. The ridiculous thing is during a recent poll most US citizens believe in this scale of salvation. If we do more good than bad we will get to go to Heaven. Really!!! I just pray daily for mercy because only that will allow me to live long enough, love Christ as my savior and learn to love others. But like I stated earlier Jeremiah may have been a much better person than me. Which do you pray for?
