Scripture for the day is Proverbs 25:20, 27:14
20 Like one who takes away a garment on a cold day,
or like vinegar poured on a wound,
is one who sings songs to a heavy heart.
14 If anyone loudly blesses their neighbor early in the morning,
it will be taken as a curse.
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, our sin causes you pain (Genesis 6:6) and our broken hearts draw you to our side (Psalm 34:18). You love us more tenderly and sensitively than a nursing mother does her child (Isaiah 49:15). Let me be so moved by your love for me that it makes me highly sensitive to the needs of those around me. Amen.
