Scripture for the day is Proverbs 24:29

Do not say, “I’ll do to them as they have done to me;
    I’ll pay them back for what they did.”

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, my forgiveness is skin deep. I refrain from obvious efforts to pay them back, but I simmer. It is far more costly to refuse thoughts of anger and self-pity, to remember I am a forgiven sinner, to pray for them from the heart. But in light of your costly love for me, I resolve to pay the price. Help me, Lord. Amen.
