Scripture for the day is Proverbs 26:23-25

Like the glaze covering an earthen vessel
    are smooth lips with an evil heart.
24 An enemy dissembles in speaking
    while harboring deceit within;
25 when an enemy speaks graciously, do not believe it,
    for there are seven abominations concealed within

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I live in a culture that pulls all the stress on image and beauty. Don’t let me be swayed by appearance. Keep me from favoring people based on their looks. Let me remember that the most beautiful soul in history was not beautiful to look at (Isaiah 53:2). Amen.
