Scripture for the day is Proverbs 20:30

Blows and wounds scrub away evil,
    and beatings purge the inmost being.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord Jesus Christ, only to you, of all the deities in all the religions of the world, can we say, “To our wounds, only God’s wounds can speak, and not a god has wounds, but Thou alone.” Seeing your wounds for me enables me to bear my wounds with patience. Amen.
