Daylight Scripture – Whoever instructs the cynic gets insulted; whoever corrects the wicked gets hurt.
Daylight Prayer: Gracious God, there are so many days when I want to instruct cynics and correct the wicked with a tongue of firey righteousness. Then I remember my own sins, doubts, and cynicism. Why is it that we so clearly see those things in others? Why is it we overlook our own grievous faults? Lord, forgive me and help me this day to vocalize kindness, understanding and hope to both the wicked and the cynical…which includes me. In your mercy, Amen.
