Scripture for the day is  Proverbs 29:8

Mockers stir up a city, but the wise turn away anger.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, many try to stir up my anger – to get my support, money, vote, and to buy things. With your help, I resolve resistance. Remind me that you are the judge, and I am the judged, yet absolved in Christ. Let these wondrous truths consume my self-righteous indignation. Amen.
