Scripture for the day is Proverbs 17:27

The one who has knowledge uses words with restraint,
    and whoever has understanding is even-tempered.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Father, when Elijah listened for you, you were not in the earthquake, wind, or fire but in the “still, small voice.” Though my sin should provoke you, you do not respond to me in wrath but in grace. Make my words calm and gracious, too. Amen.
