The Way of Wisdom: Proverbs 15

Today’s Scripture is Proverbs 15. (Click on the link to read the verses.)

A church shooting Sunday morning. My heart aches. Families altered in an instant. Hearts left broken.

Why, God? Churches should be exempt.

But that is not promised nor has it ever been. When words are insufficient, and attempts to understand are exhausting, I put my hope in you.

You are close to the broken hearted (Psalm 34:18).
You hear the prayers of the righteous (Proverbs 15:29).

Lord, a community in the body of Christ, Your Body, is hurting. I beg You would allow them to feel your closeness. Give them peace and comfort as they grieve. Give them strength to rebuild in unity. Above all, let them know, and have full faith, that even though there is evil in this world, You are good.
Amen.
