Scripture for the day is Proverbs 12:11, 28:19

11 Those who till their land will have plenty of food,
    but those who follow worthless pursuits have no sense.

19 Anyone who tills the land will have plenty of bread,
    but one who follows worthless pursuits will have plenty of poverty.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, root out the motives of fear, pride, and self-pity that can make me dishonest. And make me as unlikely to believe lies as to tell them. Make me like your Son my Savior, who told and held to the truth to his own hurt. Amen.
