Scripture for the day is Proverbs 28:27

Those who give to the poor will lack nothing,
    but those who close their eyes to them receive many curses.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, to live as a rugged individualist is not your will for me, and it leaves me vulnerable. Change my heart and strengthen the church so we, your people, can truly be members of one another. Amen.
