Scripture for the day is  Proverbs 17:9

Whoever would foster love covers over an offense,
    but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, you bring life out of death. I have both family and friendship ties that have essentially died, but I ask you to bring new life to them. Start the resurrection within me, with a new sense of your love on my heart enough to melt the hardness I still have. Amen.
