Live in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble. -- 1 Peter 3:8 Father, I confess that I have let my own over-sensitive self be wounded and have reacted with pettiness when my brothers and sisters in Christ have not treated me as I felt I deserved. I know Jesus was treated so rudely and shamefully by those He created and so I shouldn't be surprised when things don't always go well for me. But Father, please help me to know when to challenge those who wound me with a loving confrontation and when to just ignore the barb and find a way to minister to them because of some deeper wound has crippled them in their life. Father, let me be an instrument of Your peace, harmony, grace, and unity. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
