Scripture for the day is Proverbs 11:11

Through the blessing of the upright a city is exalted,
    but by the mouth of the wicked it is destroyed.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, your Son said that the church’s love relationship should be so powerful that they lead the church to see the truth of the gospel (John 17:20-23). Yet it is the rare church that is seen by its community in this way. Do whatever it takes to raise up churches that glorify you through their good deeds. Amen.
