Scripture for the day is Proverbs 12:25

Anxiety weighs down the heart,
    but a kind word cheers it up.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, “in loving kindness Jesus came, my soul in mercy to reclaim.” If I live only by the kindness of Jesus, how can I be unkind? With your Spirit, make your love so real it keeps me from being irritable, impatient, or indifferent to anyone else at all. Amen.
