Leviticus 6:1-7:27;  Mark 3:7-30;  Psalm 37:1-11;  Proverbs 10:3-4

“Fret not yourselves because of evildoers;

be not envious of wrongdoers!

For they will soon fade like the grass

and wither like the green herb.

Trust in the Lord, and do good;

dwell in the land and befriend

faithfulness.

Delight yourself in the Lord,

and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Commit your way to the Lord;

trust in him, and he will act.

He will bring forth your righteousness as the

light,

and your justice as the noonday.

Be still before the Lord and wait patiently for him;

fret not yourself over the one who prospers

in his way,

over the man who carries out evil devices!

Psalm 37:1-7

Lord God, help me to keep a cool head, yet a warm heart as I walk through this life.  There will always be evil, always injustice, unfairness and inequity.  Give me peace and understanding and the willingness to do good–even to my enemies.  May I trust in your unfailing love to guard and protect me.  In Jesus’ name I pray, Amen.
