Scripture for the day is Proverbs 10:4, 21:17, 23:20-21

Lazy hands make for poverty,
    but diligent hands bring wealth.

Whoever loves pleasure will become poor;
    whoever loves wine and olive oil will never be rich.

Do not join those who drink too much wine
    or gorge themselves on meat,
for drunkards and gluttons become poor,
    and drowsiness clothes them in rags.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, if you had come to earth in order to save only those who did not bring their spiritual poverty upon themselves, you could have saved yourself a trip! Though we did not ask for your help, or deserve it, you extended it, at great cost. Help me extend my help to people in need in the same way. Amen.
