Today’s Tenet
Practice patience.
Scripture
“A hot tempered man stirs up conflict, but a patient man calms an argument.”
– Proverbs 15:18
Focus
Responding with patience isn’t easy. At times it will go against everything you’re feeling, but patience is worth the effort it takes to develop it. Patience strengthens relationships, feeds your joy and brings peace into the workplace, into your home and into your heart…  
We can start by giving ourselves a break – we can judge ourselves too harshly….
On Point
“Only those who have patience to do simple things perfectly ever acquire the skill to do difficult things easily.” 
– James J. Corbett
Today’s Prayer
Dear God, I am grateful for Your patience with me. Help me, to do the same in how I deal with others, myself and the circumstances that come my way. Amen.
