Scripture for the day is Proverbs 12:27, 13:23

The lazy do not roast any game,
    but the diligent feed on the riches of the hunt.

An unplowed field produces food for the poor,
    but injustice sweeps it away.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, the wisdom of your Word can be reflected but never fully captured by any human political project or economic system. May your people love their neighbors, and give themselves to be salt and light in society (Matthew 5:13-14), yet never put our hopes too much in any social program. Amen.
