Scripture for the day is Proverbs 16:27

27 A scoundrel plots evil,
    and on their lips it is like a scorching fire.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord Jesus, protect me from the spreading power of harmful words. Prevent me from producing then and hurting people. Also, protect me from their power to poison my relationships and hurt my good name. “Vindicate me….and plead my case” (Psalm 43:1). Be my advocate. Amen.
