Today's Verse: Proverbs 10:6 (KJV)

Friday, June 28, 2013

Blessings are upon the head of the just: but violence covereth the mouth of the wicked.
— Proverbs 10:6 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Righteousness brings us great blessings. Violence becomes its own vile reward, bringing to those who use it what they have done to others. So what's our choice? Blessing or violence? Encouragement or a foul mouth? So what's the real choice? Letting God define character and not someone else.

My Prayer...

Holy God, I want to the live the kind of life that pleases you — a life of righteous character and gracious compassion. Father, I want to bring your Kingdom and your grace to others. I want to help others see that violence is destructive to themselves, to others, and also to the little children. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
