Take a moment to refresh, refocus, and refine your faith.
Father, soften my heart to others’ feelings and struggles. My drive to be right all the time threatens to run others down. Teach me to listen as patiently and compassionately as you do. Prevent me from choosing a sense of superiority over dignifying those around me. Humble me in the shadow of the cross that I might exemplify Christ’s selflessness in all I do. Amen.
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness and patience.
