Scripture for the day is Proverbs 6:12-15
A scoundrel and a villain
goes around with crooked speech,
13 winking the eyes, shuffling the feet,
pointing the fingers,
14 with perverted mind devising evil,
continually sowing discord;
15 on such a one calamity will descend suddenly;
in a moment, damage beyond repair.
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, thank you for this warning. It is right to tell the truth, even to people who do not welcome it. But show me if I am speaking the truth in love or instead asserting it unnecessarily or harshly. I want to be valiant for truth, not a troublemaker. Give me the wisdom to discern the difference. Amen.
