Today's Verse : Proverbs 3:31-32


March 31, 2012

Do not envy a violent man or choose any of his ways, for the
LORD detests a perverse man but takes the upright into his
-- Proverbs 3:31-32

While many are seeking a cure for the rampaging violence that
destroys lives, threatens schools, and makes our streets unsafe,
why has no one bothered to remind us what God's wise servant taught
us centuries ago? Let's not let any person, real or fictional, be
our hero if his or her fame is built on violence. The son of
Israel's most famous warrior understood this better than anyone.
Surely the Son of the Most Powerful on High said it best: "Blessed
are the peacemakers, for they will be called children of God."

Almighty God, save us from the violence of our culture and the
worship of violence that pervades our land. Please give us heroes
who are true peacemakers. In addition, dear Father, please give us
eyes to see them and the courage to honor them. In Jesus' name I
ask it. Amen.
