Scripture for the day is Proverbs 1:22

How long, O simple ones, will you love being simple?
How long will scoffers delight in their scoffing
    and fools hate knowledge?

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, help me to avoid the world’s shortcuts to looking wise – the cynical air, the inside joke, the sighs and feigned sadness about how stupid everyone is. Let me despise no one and respect everyone, even if I am correcting them. Amen.
