For as the heavens are high above the earth,
so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him;
as far as the east is from the west,
so far does he remove our transgressions from us.
God, said the medieval theologians, is a circle whose center is everywhere and whose circumference is nowhere. Such mystical language is not far from today’s verse. We worship a God whose love reaches above the heavens and who can throw our sins an infinite distance away, never to trouble us or him again. Today, love the God who loves you and give him all your sins. He will get rid of them for you.
