You, O LORD, are a God merciful and gracious,
slow to anger, abounding in kindness and fidelity. Psalm 86:15
May I be slow to anger and gracious about listening to the grief and pain others are suffering.
May I be faithful to the teachings of the Lord to love my neighbor and do good to those who hurt me.
May mercy, kindness, and compassion be the yeast that leavens my interactions with each person I encounter.
