Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. Matthew 7:12
All week-long I have done nothing but complain about family members. Sadly in spiritual arrogance I wrote in my journal what this person or that person was doing wrong. Lord, I pray that you continue to show mercy on my misguided soul. For in my arrogance I wanted you to severely punish the family I thought did not deserve your grace. And, Lord, it saddens me to confess: I never stopped to think beyond my shallow needs of feeling vindicated. Surly, Lord, a person’s soul salvation is worth more than a temporary feel good statement.
Honestly, Lord, I would be mortified if I read or heard someone asking you to punish me.
So, Lord, please forgive me of my sins. Help me to walk and speak in the ways of a righteous child of God. Teach me in my moments of spiritual enlightenment to show your love, kindness, forgiveness and courage to those during weak moments. Look upon these people and blessed them with new eyes to see their errors as you have done for me. Give their tormented souls peace so they will do the right things.
Your Loving Daughter,
