Wednesday, April 21 — Psalm 51:13–19
Job 28; 1 Corinthians 4:16–5:8
See, I have tested you in the furnace of adversity. Isaiah 48:10
Blessed are you when people hate you, and when they exclude you, revile you, and defame you on account of the Son of Man. Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, for surely your reward is great in heaven. Luke 6:22-23
Lord, we know that this journey of Christianity is not meant to be easy; we are asked to love when we are hated and to cultivate peace during times of conflict. Help us to lean on your guidance today. Amen.
