Psalm 106 lists the many iniquities of Israel and their rejection of God in favor of serving idols. Yet, even after all their sin and high handed disobedience the Psalmist ends with verse 44 -

Nevertheless He looked upon their distress...He remembered His covenant...He made them objects of compassion.

Nevertheless is a lovely word. Even though we sin God chooses to remember His grace for the sake of His name and glory; not because of anything we have done but because of who He is. He looks upon our distress and remembers His grace and provides a way of redemption through His Son, Jesus Christ! He makes us "objects of [His] compassion"! God's love is never deserved but it's always freely given! He is forever faithful to Himself and so remembers His covenant and compassion even to those so undeserving! And so we give thanks to His holy name and bless the Lord from everlasting to everlasting!
