Scripture for the day is Proverbs 11:1, 20:10, 17
A false balance is an abomination to the Lord,
but an accurate weight is his delight.
Diverse weights and diverse measures
are both alike an abomination to the Lord.
Bread gained by deceit is sweet,
but afterward the mouth will be full of gravel.
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I can feel the power of wealth to corrupt me even when I do my taxes, or when I just don’t want to know how my bank uses my savings. Protect me from the small compromises and slow hardening of the soul that money can bring. Amen.
