Today's Verse : Proverbs 10:6

Blessings crown the head of the righteous, but violence overwhelms the mouth of the wicked. — Proverbs 10:6

Thought

Righteousness brings us great blessings. Violence becomes its own vile reward, bringing to those who use it what they have done to others. So what's our choice? Blessing or violence? Encouragement or a foul mouth? So what's the real choice? Letting God define character and not someone else.

Prayer

Holy God, I want to the live the kind of life that pleases you — a life of righteous character and gracious compassion. Father, I want to bring your Kingdom and your grace to others. I want to help others see that violence is destructive to themselves, to others, and also to the little children. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
