Scripture for the day is Proverbs 25:15

Through patience a ruler can be persuaded,
    and a gentle tongue can break a bone.

After reading and reflecting on the passage, pray saying, Lord Jesus, you combined qualities of humility and majesty as no one else has ever done. And through the gospel, which both humbles us into the dust and makes us kings to reign. Make us, in your image, gentle but absolutely insistent on truth. Amen.
