Today's Verse: Proverbs 3:3-4

Let love and faithfulness never leave you; bind them around your neck, write them on the tablet of your heart. Then you will win favor and a good name in the sight of God and man. — Proverbs 3:3-4

Thought

Character is measured by the love and faithfulness we genuinely display in our daily lives. These are not simple virtues that we can fake. Merciful love is displayed when we have power over another but choose to treat them with kindness and genuine concern. Faithfulness is being a person of truth — genuine and trustworthy in word and deed. These virtues need to be a part of our everyday life and permeate our very identity. When they do, others will notice and God will be pleased.

Prayer

Holy God — faithful and compassionate, full of mercy and steadfast love — I praise you for your example of strength and mercy, holiness and compassion, love and faithfulness. Carve this character on my heart as I submit myself to your will and open my life to your Spirit's transformational power. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
