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 Jesus, you are meek and gentle (Matthew 21:5) and yet threw out the money changers from the temple (Matthew 21:12). Lord, conform me to your image, make me like yourself – assertive but not self-assertive. Amen.
