1 Have mercy on me, O God,
because of your unfailing love.
Because of your great compassion,
blot out the stain of my sins.
2 Wash me clean from my guilt.
Purify me from my sin.
Today's veres is from the book of Psalms, David here is pledding to God to forgive him of his sin of adultry. He knows he's done wrong and feels guilty about it. There are many other times in our lives we sin in many different ways, and you can't classify sin either. Our sins are neither worse or less than David's sin. Stealing, liying, bullying, ect is no different, sin is sin and we are to repent and ask God's forgiveness and try not to repeat our sin again, and if we do talk to God, keep short accounts they say so it's not dragging forever.
Here's some vereses over the past week.

17 This is what the Lord says—
your Redeemer, the Holy One of Israel:
“I am the Lord your God,
who teaches you what is good for you
and leads you along the paths you should follow.
18 “There is no judgment against anyone who believes in him. But anyone who does not believe in him has already been judged for not believing in God’s one and only Son.
25 For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved the church. He gave up his life for her 26 to make her holy and clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word.[b]
11 No discipline is enjoyable while it is happening—it’s painful! But afterward there will be a peaceful harvest of right living for those who are trained in this way.
1 Timothy 6:12
12 Fight the good fight for the true faith. Hold tightly to the eternal life to which God has called you, which you have confessed so well before many witnesses.
