Scripture for the day is Proverbs 27:9

Perfume and incense bring joy to the heart,
    and the pleasantness of a friend
    springs from their heartfelt advice.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, your gospel brings down barriers between people of different ethnicities and cultures (Galatians 3:26-28), yet I associate and hang out with my own (racial and social) kind too much. Enrich me and show the world the power of the gospel by helping me grow in cross-racial Christian friendships. Amen.
