Scripture for the day is Proverbs 25:12, 28:23

Like an earring of gold or an ornament of fine gold
    is the rebuke of a wise judge to a listening ear.

Whoever rebukes a person will in the end gain favor
    rather than one who has a flattering tongue.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord Jesus, when Paul stood before the emperor, though no one else came to his defense, you stood by him and enabled him to speak forthrightly (2 Timothy 4:16-17). Oh, please, stand by me and with me, that I can tell people the truth. Amen.
