Today's Mantra

James 1: 19-20 "So then, my beloved brethren, let every man be swift to hear, slow to speak, slow to wrath; for the wrath of man does not produce the righteousness of God."

Lord, help me to remember today that my wrath will not produce the fruit I hope to see in my children. Help me to understand that my refusal to hear their need through the whining and bickering with one another is an act of disobedience to You. Help me to be slow to speak, and when I do speak to do so with wisdom and faithful instruction. And, oh God, pour out Your Spirit on me to make me slow to wrath, for my wrath will produce nothing but broken spirits! In Jesus' Name, amen.
