Scripture for the day is Proverbs 12:15, 16:25

The way of fools seems right to them,
    but the wise listen to advice.

There is a way that appears to be right,
    but in the end it leads to death.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, I don’t want to believe that sometimes every option, even with right action, might lead to a difficult, painful end. But this was the case for your Son – there was no escaping agony and death. But he accepted it and obeyed you faithfully in it, and new life was the result. Help me to do the same. Amen.
