Scripture for the day Matthew 5:7-9

Blessed are the merciful,
    for they will be shown mercy.
Blessed are the pure in heart,
    for they will see God.
Blessed are the peacemakers,
    for they will be called children of God.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, Lord, I have learned that wisdom is only a by product of wanting something more than wisdom – to see God! Aim at knowing you, and you get wisdom thrown in. Aim just at wisdom – in order to be successful – and you get neither. At last I see it. It took me long enough. I praise you for your patience with me. Amen.
