Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths, but only what is helpful for building others up according to their needs, that it may benefit those who listen. (Ephesians 4:29)
Thank you for your love that abounds despite me. Thank you for the kindness that is shown toward me. Thank you for the patience afforded to me and the grace I don’t deserve. Help me remember the love you model when I interact with others. I invite you to pour into me so that I can offer compassion to those around me. Give me wisdom when I speak, and teach me to discern the response that is your will instead of responding out of my disposition. May every word I speak glorify you and edify others.
In Jesus’ name,
