Scripture for the day is Proverbs 17:2

A slave who deals wisely will rule over a child who acts shamefully,
    and will share the inheritance as one of the family.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, centuries before the famous words that the “content of our character” is more crucial than racial and family ties, your Word said the same. Do not let us be blinded by family loyalty and love to the flaws and shortcomings of our kin. Amen.
