Today's Verse: Proverbs 10:7

Wednesday, March 24, 2021

The memory of the righteous will be a blessing, but the name of the wicked will rot.
— Proverbs 10:7

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

Sometimes the wisdom of God is short, succinct, and sweet for those who seek to do his will. I want my children and grandchildren to remember me with sweet thoughts because their dad, and granddad, sought to be righteous and love the Lord with all his heart. I refuse to live the kind of life that poisons the lives of those I touch and leaves rot in the heritage of my descendants.

My Prayer...

O Holy and Righteous Father, I want my character to be a blessing to my children, my children's children, and to my grandchildren's children. Please give me wisdom, discernment, tact, honor, integrity, and compassionate holiness in all my actions, words, demeanor, and influence. May I provide a godly influence and a righteous memory for those in both my physical and spiritual families. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
