Scripture for the day is Proverbs 20:20, 27:8

20 If you curse father or mother,
    your lamp will go out in utter darkness.

Like a bird that strays from its nest
    is one who strays from home.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, many are bound and shaped by bitterness toward family members. Perhaps no resentment can distort our lives and relationships more. Show us your grace – which both chastens us and lifts us up – so we have enough humility and joy to forgive even the most grievous sins by our family. Amen.
