Romans 2: 6-11
verse 6: God “will give to each person according to what he has done.”
This passage is kind of rough for me, mostly because of the implicit promise of being rewarded for “good acts”. Maybe Paul is not saying we are rewarded for how many good things we do, rather we are rewarded for making good choices and avoiding the pitfalls of “following evil”. Luckily for us, God forgives us when we make mistakes. When I make a bad choice, I need to recognize it, try to fix it, and ask forgiveness.
Holy Lord, you have assured us we are all welcome in your family- every one of us. We need your help, your guidance, your wisdom, and then often your forgiveness. Help me to steer clear of sin. Please God, forgive me when I don’t. Amen
