Today's Verse: Psalm 34:14 (KJV)

Wednesday, October 13, 2021

Depart from evil, and do good; seek peace, and pursue it.
— Psalm 34:14 (KJV)

Thoughts on Today's Verse...

It is not enough to turn from evil. We can clean the putrid things out of our life, but if we do not actively pursue what is good then a worse evil will rush into the void. (Matthew 12:43-45) Let's be a people eager to do good and with a passion to "wage peace."

My Prayer...

O Father, let me be an instrument of your peace. Where there is hatred, use me to share your love and grace. Where there is injury, sin, and brokenness, use me to bring healing, forgiveness, and comfort. Please, Abba Father, use me to do your good work in my world. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
