[Comic for Friday, March 4, 2005]

Panel Three: Psalm 103:8-10. Although the entire psalm (also referenced in part in Sunday's strip) is about God's compassion and love for his chosen people of Israel, much of it can also be applied to His compassion for sinners in general.

Transcription

Trudy narrates: He spoke of love and forgiveness, but these things are not only foreign to me, but I've rejected or abused them every time they've been offered to me.
[[Trudy looks at a closed Bible Akhilesh gave her]]

Trudy narrates: I have no hope in myself; I can't see how anyone could hold such hope for me. My life is worthless. How could even a God take interest in my troubles?
[[Trudy tosses aside the Bible]]

Trudy narrates: By chance, the book lands open, and my eyes catch a phrase...
Bible text from Psalm 103:8-10 (New International Version):
people of Israel:
8 The LORD is compassionat[e]
and gracious, slow to
anger, abounding in love.
9 He will not always accuse,
nor will he harbor his
anger forever;
[1]0 He does not treat us as
our sins deserve or repay
us according to our
iniquities.
[11] For as high as the heavens

Trudy narrates: Well... it's a long trip. I needed reading material anyway.
[[Trudy reads the Bible]]
