Scripture for the day is Job 5:7

but human beings are born to trouble
    just as sparks fly upward.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, as I read about your life in the gospels, I see you experiencing pain and rejection on every page. Yet somehow I assume that I deserve a better life than you! My heart’s foolishness is so deep when it comes to suffering. Make me ready for it. Amen.
