Humble, gentle and patient with others: Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. (Ephesians 4:2)
Father, You are so patient with us, yet we are so impatient with others. Forgive us for thinking we are better than anyone else or that we are more deserving of kindness. Remind us of Your love for us, and humble us Lord so that You may love others through us, even those that seem unlovable. Let us not be so proud that we would cause anyone to stumble. Give us a spirit of patience so that we would not miss an opportunity to allow You to minister to another through us. In Jesus’ precious name, I ask that all we say and do be used to bring glory and honor to You.
