Scripture for the day is Proverbs 9:12

If you are wise, you are wise for yourself;
    if you scoff, you alone will bear it.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I praise you have made me part of a new people and a new family. It is not easy to be open, or to take the time to cultivate relationships. But I must, first, in order to honor you, my Father, and also so I will never have to suffer alone. Amen.
