Bring It Into Play
Did someone hit your button? And you have a legitimate reason to be angry.
...Like the store clerk who was really rude. Or that person who seems to get under your skin.
Ask the Holy Spirit to help you see the person. Maybe they need grace. Ask for help to restore your peace.
Choose to be kind. Honoring God with your words and actions.
Can you think of a time where you weren't kind? Ask God to forgive you and to help you understand how you should behave the next time.
Hey God. Thank you for being a kind and loving Father. It isn't always easy to be kind. Help me to turn my thoughts and actions to you when I feel like being harsh with someone. I want the Holy Spirit to stop me and to help me do better. Thanks for helping me to rise about my feelings to honor you. I love you. In Jesus' Name, Amen.
