Scripture for the day is Proverbs 15:20, 30:11, 17
A wise child makes a glad father,
but the foolish despise their mothers.
11 There are those who curse their fathers
and do not bless their mothers.
17 The eye that mocks a father
and scorns to obey a mother
will be pecked out by the ravens of the valley
and eaten by the vultures.
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, many have mixed feelings about their parents. But help us look over their shoulders to you, our true Father, who gives us the love we need, and has given us our parents to serve us in so many ways. In the light of these truths, show us how to honor them. Amen.
