Short and wise sayings from the Old Testament book of Proverbs will provide our daily scriptures this week.
Read Proverbs 16:7
When the Lord takes pleasure in anyone's way,
he causes their enemies to make peace with them.
Sometimes in life we find ourselves surrounded by opposing opinions and uncooperative people. Those are very difficult places to be. But this verse gives us the assurance that when we are living life God's way, even those who don't see eye to eye with us will come to respect our integrity.
When you face one of these prickly people or tense situations today, breathe a quick prayer asking for God's wisdom to handle things in a way that reflects your relationship with him.
