    Psalms 103 explains the love of God for his people.We as people of God should demonstrate that same love by fearing God,His mercy toward them that fear him,for the heaven is high above earth.Who knows the measurement between heaven and earth?If we repent of our sins,God removes our transgressions as far as the east is from the west.Now who can measure the east from the west? God mercy is forever.
