Get rid of all bitterness, rage, anger, harsh words, and slander, as well as all types of evil behavior. Instead, be kind to each other, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, just as God through Christ has forgiven you.
Insight: Bitterness, rage, anger, and harsh words can feel like natural expressions for the world we live in but have no place in the relationships of followers of Christ. We can be the difference if instead, we live to be kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving with everyone we have dealings with. Jesus lived as a perfect example of this.
Prayer: Lord, thank you for sending your Son Jesus to live as a perfect example in all things. Help us to be kind, tenderhearted, and forgiving as we choose to be different and bring honor to you with our actions and words. In Jesus name, Amen.
