Scripture for the day is Proverbs 11:16, 24:5

16 A gracious woman gets honor,
    but she who hates virtue is covered with shame.
The timid become destitute,
    but the aggressive gain riches.

Wise warriors are mightier than strong ones,
    and those who have knowledge than those who have strength;

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, there is nothing more seductive than power. If I am honest, I confess that there are many situations and relationships I enjoy mainly because of the power I exercise in them. Help me to kill the sinful part of my heart that rejoices in that. Amen.
