Today's Verse : Proverbs 3:7

Do not be wise in your own eyes; fear the LORD and shun evil. — Proverbs 3:7

Thought

Let's keep this simple. First, we need to admit that with the complexities and perplexities of life, even the smartest of us is not all that brilliant. Second, the LORD our God is awesome in holiness, majesty, power, wisdom, and grace; he is far beyond us and all we can truly grasp of him is the smallest of glimpses of glory. Finally, let's stay away from anything that smacks of evil knowing that evil infects and confuses us, as well as separates us from God.

Prayer

All wise and gracious Heavenly Father, your wisdom is matchless, your grace unfathomable, your holiness incomparable, and your love beyond comprehension. Thank you for all of your many blessings and gifts, but most of all I thank you for your gift of accessibility to those of us who have no right in your presence but who are invited here by your loving mercy. Please strengthen my will to withstand temptation and deepen my wisdom to see evil for what it is. Please empower me in my desire to stay far away from evil and its influence. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
