Today's Verse : Proverbs 21:29

A wicked man puts up a bold front, but an upright man gives thought to his ways. — Proverbs 21:29

Thought

When we harbor wickedness in our hearts, there are all sorts of "fronts" we have to keep up so people won't know the truth about us. But if righteousness is our aim, we'll try to live up to that goal with honesty. When we blow it, we'll be honest and ask forgiveness, learning from our mistakes. We won't put up a facade. We know that even though we're flawed, God is not through working on us yet!

Prayer

Thank you, Almighty God, for the many times you have forgiven me. I'm sorry for the times I've tried to hide my sin from others and from you. I want to live an honest, upright life, bringing glory to you in what I do, what I say, and how I treat others. Please grant me this grace with increasing measure day by day. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
