Psalm 55:16–19; Leviticus 20:9–21:12; Mark 6:45–56

For in many dreams and in many words there is emptiness. Rather, fear God. Ecclesiastes 5:7 (NASB)

But avoid stupid controversies, genealogies, dissensions, and quarrels about the law, for they are unprofitable and worthless. Titus 3:9

Father, we grieve you with our pettiness! People know we are Christ’s by the love we have for each other. Remind us: in essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; and in everything, love. Reconcile us to one another in you. Amen.
