Psalm 103-104; Romans 14

From today's Bible reading:

11:12 AM Psalm 103:
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name!
Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits,
11:13 AM The LORD works righteousness and justice for all who are oppressed.
11:14 AM He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.
as high as the heavens are 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.
11:15 AM As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him.
he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.
11:16 AM The LORD has established his throne in the heavens, and his kingdom rules over all.
11:17 AM Bless the LORD, O you his angels, you mighty ones who do his word, obeying the voice of his word!
Bless the LORD, all his hosts, his ministers, who do his will!
Bless the LORD, all his works, in all places of his dominion.
Bless the LORD, O my soul!

11:18 AM Psalm 104:
Bless the LORD, O my soul! O LORD my God, you are very great!
You are clothed with splendor and majesty, covering yourself with light as with a garment, stretching out the heavens like a tent
11:19 AM He lays the beams of his chambers on the waters
11:20 AM He set the earth on its foundations, so that it should never be moved.
11:21 AM You covered it with the deep as with a garment; the waters stood above the mountains.
11:22 AM At your rebuke they fled; at the sound of your thunder they took to flight.
The mountains rose, the valleys sank down to the place that you appointed for them.
You set a boundary that they may not pass, so that they might not again cover the earth.
You make springs gush forth in the valleys; they flow between the hills;
11:23 AM From your lofty abode you water the mountains; the earth is satisfied with the fruit of your work.
The trees of the LORD are watered abundantly, the cedars of Lebanon that he planted.

11:27 AM Romans 14:
As for the one who is weak in faith, welcome him, but not to quarrel over opinions.
none of us lives to himself, and none of us dies to himself.
if we live, we live to the Lord, and if we die, we die to the Lord.
So then, whether we live or whether we die, we are the Lord's.
11:28 AM to this end Christ died and lived again, that he might be Lord both of the dead and of the living.
As I live, says the Lord, every knee shall bow to me, and every tongue shall confess to God.
11:29 AM So then each of us will give an account of himself to God.
decide never to put a stumbling block or hindrance in the way of a brother.
11:30 AM By what you eat, do not destroy the one for whom Christ died.
11:31 AM the kingdom of God is not a matter of eating and drinking but of righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.
11:32 AM Blessed is the one who has no reason to pass judgment on himself for what he approves.
whatever does not proceed from faith is sin.
