“And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient,”
2 Timothy 2:24
I love this. I don't always live it, but I want to. Can you imagine the world... or even just our individual lives, if we stopped the strife, and were gentle and patient with each other? If we were always ready to share and teach rather than getting defensive or upset? I love that version of the world. :) Today, maybe we can try to get closer to it. Every time we're tempted to become angry... let's try to switch perspectives, and think of ourselves on the other side. Often, the people that we're talking to are trying to do their best as well, but we're just not seeing the whole picture. Today, let's be gentle and patient, no matter what comes at us. Even if it doesn't change the world or our lives immediately... it will change today. And that's always enough.
