less than we deserve

Job 11

v6

And that he would shew thee the secrets of wisdom, that [they are] double to that which is! Know therefore that God exacteth of thee [less] than thine iniquity [deserveth].

When we have a hard time, we might feel like the Lord is unfair. He is not unfair. We should remember that we are suffering less than we deserve to suffer for our sins.

Only a Sinner

By James Gray, 1905 and Dan­i­el Town­er
Naught have I gotten but what I received;
Grace hath bestowed it since I have believed;
Boasting excluded, pride I abase;
I’m only a sinner, saved by grace!

Only a sinner, saved by grace!
Only a sinner, saved by grace!
This is my story, to God be the glory—
I’m only a sinner, saved by grace!
