Scripture for the day is Proverbs 30:12-13

those who are pure in their own eyes
    and yet are not cleansed of their filth;
13 those whose eyes are ever so haughty,
    whose glances are so disdainful

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord, I confess that my own self-pity and self-absorption make me impatient with people who have problems. I want to surround myself with “low-maintenance” people. But if you had done that, where would I be? Reproduce your sympathetic heart in me. Amen.
