Scripture for the day is Proverbs 3:11-12, 10:16, 24:10

My son, do not despise the Lord’s discipline,
    and do not resent his rebuke,
because the Lord disciplines those he loves,
    as a father the son he delights in.

The wages of the righteous is life,
    but the earnings of the wicked are sin and death.

If you falter in a time of trouble,
    how small is your strength!

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, as I look at my own heart and the people I know, despite our fears of suffering, “adversity hath slain her thousands, but prosperity her ten thousands.” Good times are far more likely to make you unreal to us. Save us, spiritually, from prosperity. Amen.
