Scripture for the day is Ecclesiastes 9:2-3

is vanity, since the same fate comes to all, to the righteous and the wicked, to the good and the evil, to the clean and the unclean, to those who sacrifice and those who do not sacrifice. As are the good, so are the sinners; those who swear are like those who shun an oath. This is an evil in all that happens under the sun, that the same fate comes to everyone. Moreover, the hearts of all are full of evil; madness is in their hearts while they live, and after that they go to the dead.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, Ecclesiastes painfully provokes me to admit that you are all my hope. Help me raise my eyes “above the sun,” constantly remembering that, while you will one day make everything right, nothing will be fully right until then. Amen.
