Discussion for Psalms 103:14

  • John madden for verse 14
    Our frailty is so obvious.we are weak but he is strong
  • Chris M Hall for verse 14
    We are so low on this world. Dust we are, and dust we shall be. Any man who chooses to lust in this world for all his days, denying the Lord, will return to dust. But when he is formed up once more, God will not hear his cries for him. As God calls you in this life, he wants you. But if you deny him here, you will Call for Him there, but He will not hear you. Dust to Dust. Ash to Ash. Life to Death.
  • God remembers that we are but dust, but Man always forget. You are but dust, you wealthy, you powerful, you beautiful, you proud ones, God says so.
