1 Passage: 2 Timothy 2:24-26

1 Verse: Verse 24 The Lord's bond-servant must not be quarrelsome, but be kind to all, able to teach, patient when wronged . . .

1 Prayer: Thank You, Father, for accepting me into Your service. I am grateful for the opportunity to be part of Your divine plan to redeem this fallen world. Please help me to grow in the attributes that characterize Your good and faithful servants. Today, as I encounter people of all kinds, from family and friends to enemies and strangers, please allow me to be kind to all. Grant me patience when wronged and keep me from quarrels.

1 Passage: 2 Timothy 2:24-26

1 Verse: Verse 25 "..with gentleness correcting those who are in opposition, if perhaps God may grant them repentance leading to the knowledge of the truth..."

1 Prayer: "Father, thank You for Your daily guidance. Please forgive me when I don't choose to follow the path You light for me. You don't need or want me to force feed people Your word. Help me to spread love and Your truth -- the only truth! -- with loving kindness and surety, and let Your words be my words when the times come for falsehoods to be corrected.
