bible[1]God’s Word – A rebuke impresses a man of discernment more than a hundred lashes a fool.
Proverbs 17:10

Proverbs 17

Heavenly Father,

You are glory and power… You are glory and might.  You are mighty to save us from the perils of this dark world.  We rejoice in the victories you give.  Thank you for your faithful love and forgiveness.  Let us be faithful to you  Lord so that we may forgive quickly just as you have forgiven us.  Father your daughter will not be charmed by one who attempts to bribe.  A bribe is a charm to the one who gives it; wherever he turns, he succeeds.  9 He who covers over an offense promotes love, but whoever repeats the matter separates close friends. We will not repeat matters of offense.  A rebuke impresses a man of discernment more than a hundred lashes a fool. Your daughters will receive  a rebuke because it brings forth maturity. We will not be like the evil man who is bent only on rebellion; a merciless official will be sent against him. Your daughters will not seek to do evil.  Your word states: If a man pays back evil for good, evil will never leave his house. Starting a quarrel is like breaching a dam; so drop the matter before a dispute breaks out. Your daughter will love one another deeply because love covers all wrongs.  Thank you Father for giving us your unfailing love that endures all things…
Thank you for your salvation through Christ shedding his blood on Calvary. 

Mercy, peace and love be yours in abundance,
Love in Christ
