Scripture for the day is Proverbs 3:1-2, 16:5, 21:7

My child, do not forget my teaching,
    but let your heart keep my commandments;
for length of days and years of life
    and abundant welfare they will give you.

All those who are arrogant are an abomination to the Lord;
    be assured, they will not go unpunished.

The violence of the wicked will sweep them away,
    because they refuse to do what is just.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, my culture tells me that I can be whatever I choose, but your Word and experience show me that is not the case. My body, my talents, my location in the world – all both limits me and serve as callings from you. Help me to become the person you made me to be. Amen.
