Scripture for the day is Proverbs 15:1
A gentle answer turns away wrath,
but a harsh word stirs up anger.
After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, when your disciples let you down in your hour of greatest need in Gethsemane, your words were so gentle (Matthew 26:41) and without any rancor. Even when you are stern with me, you overwhelm me with love. Let me be the same with everyone. Amen.
