Life at hard labor


James 3:13-18

Question for reflection:
Who in your life do you need to treat with more dignity and respect? What specific steps could you take to build up the community through that relationship?

Prayer for the day:

God, help me to be a better friend to _________. Make me gentle and reasonable. I want to overflow with blessings and mercy. Give me strength to do the hard work of community, with dignity and humility befitting a follower of Jesus. Amen.


~ Jonathan Shively, Executive Director, Congregational Life Ministries
