It was interesting to me to notice Psalm 31:
My eye wastes away with grief,
yes, my soul and my body.
For my life is spent with grief,
and my years with sighing;
my strength fails because of my iniquity,
and my bones waste away.

And then in Psalm 25 we read:
Look on my affliction and my pain
and forgive all my sins.

This is reflected in many other scripture passages. For some reason, though, these jumped out at me recently. It's almost like the psalmist admits that sin has physical consequences, and that the absolution is God's response even when the problem is physical or temporal ... almost like forgiveness is what's most important to Him.
