Scripture for the day is Proverbs 16:32

One who is slow to anger is better than the mighty,
    and one whose temper is controlled than one who captures a city.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, the last of the “fruit of the Spirit” (Galatians 5:22-23), self-control, seems to be also the slowest to grow in me. I can be loving and even humble before I can get control of my tongue and behavior. I repent and ask you to show me the way forward. Amen.
