Scripture for the day is Proverbs 9:14-17

She sits at the door of her house,
    on a seat at the high places of the town,
15 calling to those who pass by,
    who are going straight on their way,
16 “You who are simple, turn in here!”
    And to those without sense she says,
17 “Stolen water is sweet,
    and bread eaten in secret is pleasant.”

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I have many friends who don’t believe in God at all but believe intensely in human rights and in the importance of aiding the oppressed. They don’t see that these “goods” have been stolen. Help me find ways of explaining that without unnecessarily offending, Open their hearts to their need for you. Amen.
