Scripture for the day is Proverbs 2:16-17

You will be saved from the loose woman,
    from the adulteress with her smooth words,
17 who forsakes the partner of her youth
    and forgets her sacred covenant

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, you were not smitten with our beauty, and yet you made an eternal covenant with us. You came and died and made us your own and now you are patiently making us like yourself. Your covenantal love in my family and friendships. Amen.
