Scripture for the day is Proverbs 11:3, 12:5, 14:22

The integrity of the upright guides them,
    but the unfaithful are destroyed by their duplicity.

The plans of the righteous are just,
    but the advice of the wicked is deceitful.

Do not those who plot evil go astray?
    But those who plan what is good find love and faithfulness.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, my culture conditions me to desire quick answers that can fit on a slide or a short video. But you are not an answer dispenser or a wisdom cash window. Here I resolve to take the long journey to becoming the kind of person you guide. “I set my heart on pilgrimage” (Psalm 84:5). Amen.
