Friday, July 17 — Psalm 86:11–17
Deuteronomy 28:25–57; Luke 9:51–62
For the Lord your God is God of gods and Lord of lords, the great God, mighty and awesome, who is not partial and takes no bribe. Deuteronomy 10:17
Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God. Matthew 5:8
Perfect Lord, sometimes it’s hard to have a soft heart in a world full of anger and despair, of war and unfairness. Help us see the way you see, love the way you love, and help us to stay pure-hearted. In Jesus’ name, we pray. Amen.
