Scripture for the day is Proverbs 1:10-11,15

My child, if sinners entice you,
    do not consent.
11 If they say, “Come with us, let us lie in wait for blood;
    let us wantonly ambush the innocent

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, it is so self-serving to imagine that our friends and family could never do anything that bad. Yes they can, and so can I. Help me create a community that “exhorts one another daily,” lest we be “hardened by the deceptive nature of our own sin” (Hebrews 3:13). Amen.
