“‘Do not seek revenge or bear a grudge against anyone among your people, but love your neighbor as yourself. I am the Lord. - Leviticus 19:18

Dear Jesus, the temptation is there to find subtle ways to get even with those close to me while I rehearse all the reasons they deserve it. It's easy to justify withdrawing love from them if they are careless or selfish around me. My sins may not be news worthy but I know you see my conniving ways. Forgive me and by your grace reach down and make me emotionally mature enough to act in love and not revenge in even the slightest ways. I want my family and friends to know that you are alive and well by what they see in me. AMEN

"Selflessness and aspirin have this in common: they both reduce pain.
