Scripture for the day is Proverbs 8:27-29

When he established the heavens, I was there,
    when he drew a circle on the face of the deep,
28 when he made firm the skies above,
    when he established the fountains of the deep,
29 when he assigned to the sea its limit,
    so that the waters might not transgress his command,
when he marked out the foundations of the earth

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I have been perplexed by Proverbs’ dual call to not be “wise in my own eyes” and yet to face life with confidence and resolve. How can I do both? But the gospel is the answer. I am a loved failure, a righteous-in-him sinner. This is truly the beginning of wisdom. Amen.
