Scripture for the day is Proverbs 26:3

A whip for the horse, a bridle for the donkey,
    and a rod for the backs of fools!

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, isn’t this my worst sin against you? I obey because I have to, not because I want to. I repent because of the consequences of sin, not just because it grieves you, the God I love. Show me again the suffering love of your Son for me, until I obey, not like a donkey but out of grateful joy. Amen.
