Scripture: The LORD is just in all his ways, and kind in all his doings.--Psalms 145:17
Invitation: Now take some deep cleansing breaths. Slowly inhale. Slowly exhale. Slowly inhale all that is of God and exhale all that is not God. Settle your mind and your spirit. Be still and quiet and invite an awareness of God's presence.
Now read today's scripture very slowly. Repeat 5 times. Each times as you read, slow your pace.
The LORD is just in all his ways,
and kind in all his doings.
After the 5th time, only read or repeat the words that really resonate with you. Repeat them over and over.

Prayer: Lord, thank you for holding justice accountable with kindness. You are both just and kind. Teach me how uphold both of these virtues as I interact with my neighbor. Also, may these attributes emerge as I endure adversity. Amen.
