>The word for the day, according to dictionary.com, is probity: “complete and confirmed integrity; uprightness.” I like the word, and find it even more fascinating that yesterday’s word was recherche which can mean: “uncommon; exotic; rare.”

The two words fit together nicely given current events. The question is, do they point to an absence of such quality in today’s leadership or the evidence of such remarkable qualities finally surfacing on some fronts?

Something worth considering given:

Let us pray for community leaders, politicians, pastors, bishops, and all who are in positions of authority and influence, that they might model recherche probity by both precept and example. Maybe then these words for the day might become virtues to embody over a lifetime.
