“Let no unwholesome word proceed from your mouth, but only such a word as is good for edification according to the need of the moment…” (Ephesians 4:29). We live in divided times. In this time of discordant rhetoric, it is crucial that we stand as a model for virtue and civility.
Lord, you are the eternal word by which all things came to be.
Your word brings life, healing, and mercy.
May my words today be in service of your kingdom.
Let me sow peace where there is division,
love where there is hatred,
and patience in the presence of impertinence.
