Scripture for the day is Proverbs 25:7-10
it is better for him to say to you, “Come up here,”
than for him to humiliate you before his nobles.
What you have seen with your eyes
8 do not bring hastily to court,
for what will you do in the end
if your neighbor puts you to shame?
9 If you take your neighbor to court,
do not betray another’s confidence,
10 or the one who hears it may shame you
and the charge against you will stand.
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, inflammatory images and rhetoric are now shared instantly and passions lead so quickly to legal actions. But when I get indignant, slow me down, remind me of my own wrongdoings, and give me the courage to talk to the people personally or drop it. Amen.
