Scripture for the day is Proverbs 22:10

Drive out the mocker, and out goes strife;
    quarrels and insults are ended.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord Jesus, brilliant put-downs draw me so swiftly into laughing and despising people – calling them “Racas,” inferior idiots (Matthew 5:22), in my heart. If anyone had the right to mock and jeer, you did. But you didn’t. Burn away my pride and make me like you. Amen.
