The fear of the Lord is the beginning of Wisdom.  – Prov 1:7

Reflection.  Everyone who has suffered from scrupulosity knows that an excessive fear of God’s judgment can have devastating effects on one’s emotional life.  Scruples are more related to one’s nervous symptoms than to morality.  God is not offended by trifles.  When you make a sensible effort to be good, God is pleased.  Perfectionism is not Christianity.

Prayer.  Father, help me to trust in Your mercy.  I know You love me.
